ARES Simulated Emergency Test, Oct 14/2017

Post by VA3-GUF » Sat Oct 14, 2017 11:59 am

To all Ham Radio operators,

This is a ARES Simulated Emergency Test on Saturday October 14th to see on short notice numbers of operators that would be able to assist Grey County with communication requirements between municipalities. We all understand that in the case of an emergency, you may be required to take care of your family and property first since you could be in the heart of the emergency affected area. This is when we rely on neighbouring HAM operators to assist just like we would should they have an emergency. In the event of an emergency or SET, simply listen in on your repeater to get any ARES updates.

We would ask you the following questions and look forward to your response to see at the end of the day numbers that can engage in the unlikely event of an emergency on short notice.

1. If an emergency were called today asking for HAM radio operators to assist the following municipalities with communications due to an emergency that took out Power, Cell and phone service, would you raise your hand and volunteer? YES / NO

2. If you answered NO to question 1, would you participate at another emergency should your personal situation permit it? YES / NO

3. If you answered YES to question 1, indicate what hours today you could commit to? ( Please give time of day hours in a 24 hour clock)

4. If you answered YES to question #1, select which of the 10 Grey County municipalities you would be able to provide communication assistance to on the list below (select more than one if it applies).

Chatsworth
Durham
Georgian Bluffs
Grey Highlands
Hanover
Meaford
Owen Sound
Southgate
The Blue Mountains
West Grey

Results will be reported back to RAC and the GBARC group.

Thank for your responses and participation in this ARES Simulated Emergency Test.

Frank Gufler
