Whitman Hams Conduct Search And Rescue Training

Whitman ARC logo“Six Whitman Amateur Radio Club members and nine area hams participated in a lost person search and rescue exercise in the Norton Town Forest as part of ongoing Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training.

“A new wave of introductory level amateur radio operators appear to be coming from Emergency Management Agency volunteers. Amateur Radio has its roots in serving the public in times of emergencies and these new volunteers appreciate Amateur Radio as a valuable tool in this effort.”
