In the premiere of Designated Survivor (2016), Tom Kirkman is informed in about 10-15 hours prior to the state of the union address in which the president, vice president and others were killed.

Is such a choice really done only 10-15 hours prior and not weeks in advance?

    Given the force protection nature of this action, I don't expect there will be referential material to support an answer. – Drunk Cynic Sep 25 '16 at 19:47
  • @DrunkCynic It doesn't have to be specific. At the very least is 10-15 hours realistic? Thanks! – BCLC Aug 29 '18 at 16:06
