East Palestine Train Derailment Just Became MUCH Stranger


Remember an earlier report of a 2022 Netflix movie called White Noise that had an eerily similar script to the East Palestine train derailment?

Well, the East Palestine catastrophe just got much stranger.

In October, WKBN 27 ran a report that discussed a digital ID pilot program to provide quick "medical information for emergency responders."

East Palestine was the center of the 'MyID' emergency service.

"East Palestine is known as 'The Place to Be.' It's way ahead of the curve to develop a program to provide better treatment for anyone, in the event of an emergency," a broadcaster stated.

"MyID provides quick medical information for emergency responders," he added.

"MyID works by taking a camera phone and pointing it at a QR code. It provides valuable medical information such as allergies, breathing difficulties or any other medical condition, so you get proper treatment and care," the broadcaster explained.

"If anybody sees the QR code, you'll be able to scan this and get the information so it helps that person not necessarily just here, but anywhere in the nation," Outreach Coordinator Darlene Chapman explained.

"There are a few options for MyID. A bracelet, key fob, necklace or attachment on your watch band. You can choose the one which fits your lifestyle best," the broadcaster explained.

MyID orders were scheduled to start in January, according to the report.

"My goal is to have 100% of our residents and the citizens we serve in the township to have one of these and be working with them to make sure that we can treat them better and provide the best service that we can," said East Palestine Fire Chief Keith Drabick.

"There's a 3 year plan to get MyID going across the village, and make it available to all 4,700 residents," the broadcaster said.


WKBN 27 published an article on East Palestine's upcoming MyID program about one week before the train derailment.

East Palestine is excited to make an important medical device available to all 4,700 residents. On Sunday, there will be a special meeting to share more or start signing up.

The MyID program is ready to roll out in East Palestine. It’s a medical information system that helps first responders provide care.

“It gives us that rapid information that we may need should somebody be unresponsive or having some kind of medical emergency,” said East Palestine Fire Chief Keith Drabick.

MyID provides wearable devices or key FOBs that have QR codes. Emergency responders use a camera phone to access important medical information. It shows them the underlying medical conditions people have supplied about allergies, medications and emergency contacts. That information could impact treatment decisions if a person can’t say it. All of the information is HIPPA compliant.

“We’re not doing this to gain anybody’s information, to try and steal anybody’s information. We’re doing this to help the public in medical emergencies,” Drabick said.

MyID is available in East Palestine and Unity Township. The fire department will demonstrate it to other departments that provide backup. MyID can be used anywhere.

The timing of this MyID rollout compared to the catastrophic emergency situation one week later is extremely suspect.



Carefully orchestrated disaster to test this digital ID program?
