Eastern Massachusetts ARES SET Drill Saturday November 12th 10 AM-1 PM

Hello to all….

Eastern Massachusetts ARES will conduct the section wide ARES SET on Saturday November 12th from 10 AM-1 PM. By coincidence, this ARES Drill will take place on the same day as the New Hampshire and Vermont ARES SET’s so we may get some participation from neighboring sections.

Details on the drill scenario will follow in later updates but the scenario will be non-weather related and be based on an event that would have little or no advanced warning. Goals and objectives of the drill will be outlined in a subsequent update to be posted either this weekend or next weekend.

All ARES groups are requested to participate in the exercise. Amateurs involved in RACES are asked to participate as well.

We have not had an exercise since early June. This exercise will keep all emergency communicators in the section fresh and their protocols in communication current. I look forward to working with all of you on this exercise.Respectfully Submitted,

Robert Macedo (KD1CY)
