CALLING ALL HAMS
Coos County will be having it's second annual Emergency Communication practice set this Saturday the 12th between 0830 and 1400...8:30am to 2pm.
Locally all licensed Amateur radio operators are invited to participate by contacting the new Coos County EYEWARN NET on the VHF frequency 146.46 SIMPLEX.
This is a Statewide exercise that is using the scenario that a 9.1 Quake has occurred in the Cascade region and after 4 days the Grid & Internet is down along with Repeaters and Cell towers are out of Battery or fuel to power them or are destroyed.
The EYEWARN NET has been created to allow the local “HAM” operators to not only monitor the condition of the County, but have an active roll in calling in critical info on road, infrastructure, evacuation assembly areas and what we call “Windshield Reports”. This information is then forwarded to the County Emergency Management to allow them to better access the conditions throughout the County and help in directing first responders.
ARES/RACES certified emergency communicators will be busy on other emergency frequencies using HF, VHF, and digital communications during this exercise so this opens up a great opportunity for you.
All licensed operators are encouraged to participate and exercise your communication skills...Please at least check-in and monitor... practice a simulated report ...you can add immensely to the exercise and also learn how to add this to your preparedness skills.
