Saturday, October 23rd Exercise

The timeline for our emergency communications exercise on Saturday is complex. We have prepared a chart that breaks down the timeline by the role of each participant, and how your part relates to the other participants. You can view or download the chart here. Some other documents that will be useful: is building on the foundation put in place with to provide web support for radio amateurs preparing to provide emergency communications (EmComm) for Eugene, Oregon and surrounding areas. Licensed HAM radio operators, as well as users of FRS and GMRS radios are working to prepare for emergencies where other traditional means of communication (land lines, and cell phones) may not be available. The group comprises volunteers of diverse interests and backgrounds, but with a common commitment to build and maintain an emergency communications infrastructure. While a possible Cascadia Subduction Zone Earthquake is a primary motivator, the group is preparing to be of service in any emergency where their communications skills may be needed.
