Advanced Emergency Communications Workshop Saturday August 13th!!

There will be an Advanced Emergency Communications Workshop on Saturday August 13th, 2005 from 10:00 AM-4:00 PM at the Sturdy Memorial Hospital Rice Webb Auditorium in Attleboro, Massachusetts. This session is being put on by the ARES Section Staff, and the Sturdy Memorial Amateur Radio Club in conjunction with its ARES Emergency Response Team.

This Advanced Emergency Communications Workshop will provide additional background in advanced emergency communication topics that will build on our
general level emergency communications workshop course. Those who have not attended our general level emergency communications workshop course may attend this advanced workshop but must understand that many of the basic topics that are covered in our general level course will not be covered in this specific workshop.

Please bring an HT to the workshop as it may be utilized during the workshop.

Topics for this advanced workshop include the following:

Emergency Communication Applications of Voice Over IP Technology
Amateur Radio Digital Communications and Applications for Emergency Communications
How to Be a Participant and How to Be Net Control for a NTS Traffic Net
How to Deploy, Setup and Operate at an Existing EOC When Asked to Deploy How to Deploy, Setup and Operate at a shelter or similar place of deployment

This training will also feature morning refreshments and lunch at no coerced charge to participants in the workshop, however, donations for lunch from participants would be helpful.

The Emergency Communications presentations will be given by other Amateur Operators well versed in the topics listed above. The training will be a worthwhile endeavor not just for emergency communicators but for anyone who is an amateur radio operator, and wants to
learn more about the hobby.

Preregistration is required for this workshop so that the club can assure enough food is provided so please decide as soon as possible if you would like to attend this workshop.
