***** ARES Net Controls Requested to Place Themselves on 18 hour Standby *****
***** Shelters May Open in Response to Anticipated Utility Damage *****
ARES Net Controls are requested to place themselves on 18 hour Standby. Shelters may open in response to anticipated utility damage. The mobilization would be effective at approximately 1800 tomorrow. Updates will appear first on the website, followed by email messages. If you have any questions about the mobilization and the particulars for your local area, please contact your EC and/or DEC
I am expecting heavy winds with high enough wind gusts to cause some utility damage throughout the section, requiring our networks to be brought up. Some shelters may need to be opened due to the expected cold wx with this event. Please monitor Rob, KD1CY’s messages concerning the event.
I will be working from my home during the first part of the event, moving to the SEOC if they so desire. While at my QTH, I will guard 146.64, 146.955, 53.31, and listening on 449.925 and 3943/7245 KHz. I also have Echolink capability.
I hope we escape the brunt of this, but if not, I look forward to working with all of you.
Thank you and 73,
