Meeting on the Air
This month’s program is on Emergency Preparedness. As amateur radio operators, we have already committed ourselves to providing emergency communications, but we must be ready to respond to and survive during an emergency. For individuals or families, emergency preparedness includes plans to respond to a house fire, an extended power outage, or an evacuation. Some large-scale emergencies include natural disasters (hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, flooding), wide spread disease outbreaks, and terrorist attacks.
Will Glasgow, KN4WMC, is passionate about emergency preparedness and he will present some of the basics of emergency preparedness followed by a Q&A session.
I hope that you will join in the conversation on our 145.15 repeater at our next virtual club meeting Monday, April 27 from 7:15-8:30 PM. Please consider inviting Hams who are not currently members of our club, as well as members of other clubs, to join us.
The Boy Scout motto is Be Prepared. Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting was asked, “Prepared for what?” and he replied “Why, for any old thing. You are always in a state of readiness in mind and body to do your duty.”
