Looking for terror? Help is on the way.

Murfreesboro Tennessee made national news. I found this in the latest issue of the Onion. I feel safer already, don't you? Maybe we should all move to the Murfreesboro area. You think?

The WMFB TerrorFirst! van Posted by Hello

MURFREESBORO, TN—Touting itself as "the only channel with a terror-alert system designed to meet the specific needs of central Tennessee," Fox News affiliate WMFB-TV Channel 11 debuted its terror-alert van Monday.

"The team you trust to keep you informed is working to keep the greater Murfreesboro area—and your family—safe from Muslim extremists," said station
manager Carl Bogert, unveiling the TerrorFirst! van at a press conference held
in the "Terrorist No Zone" in the back parking lot. "When terrorism threatens
the people of central Tennessee, Fox 11 is there first. Watch Channel 11 for up-to-the-minute coverage of where, when, and how the enemies of freedom are
coming to get you."


Painted red, white, and blue, the TerrorFirst! van is the first mobile unit devoted to monitoring terrorist threats on a local level. The van is equipped with live satellite feeds to and from the Fox News channel, a fax machine prepared to receive alerts from the Department of Homeland Security in Washington, an English-Arabic phrase book for translating any intercepted al-Qaeda correspondence, and a field-issue anthrax-detection kit.
