Local Farmer Sounds the Alarm: Why Did East Palestine Launch ‘MyID’ Emergency Service to Surveil Biometrics One Week Before Ohio Train Derailment? Bob Moore, a 70-year-old farmer and longtime resident of East Palestine, initially ignored local news reports urging residents to sign up for “MyID” to receive a new biometric tracking device that provides first responders updates about an individual’s health conditions amid an emergency or “major disaster.”  “The people were asked to go to the local fire department in downtown East Palestine to get that MyID. They began monitoring your physical activity, your heart rate, your respiration, anything you might be exposed to…It’s a monitoring device.”
