Ready on the Home Front

What do you think would happen today if you got ahold of live telephone operator and shouted, "Army Flash!"

The amazing thing is how much more there was to the civil defense system than the old cliche about the warden yelling, "Douse those lights!"

You're kidding, right? A real live operator in today's world???

And, if such a thing existed why would Samje in New Delhi know about CD in the US?

The only operators I know are standing by are the ones selling me that shark vacuum late at night, the telethon/pledge drive ones and 911.
