Is it just me or did the mock disaster staged by emergency service 
personel seems unrealistic?

I can't recall a single instance in which a meth lab exploded during 
a house party.

In fact, the idea that the owner of a meth lab would host a house 
party is fairly ludicrous.

Normally these are more clandestine things aren't they?

The Prince Albert Daily Herald has engaged in the spreading of 
propaganda. Scare the public, get them thinking that the house party 
next door could end up turning their children into something 
resembling last Sunday's chunky chili dog leftovers and police get 
more money. Yay.

It's important for emergency services to participate in mock 
disasters just as it is important for the military to participate in war games.

I don't think that's up for debate but this is not only an 
exceptionally unlikely scenario, it is a scenario which frightens the 
public more than anything else.

Why not a mock plane crash? At least that would be somewhat more plausible.
