The Algonquin Amateur Radio Club has offered its assistance to emergency planners in helping to map radio coverage for the Marlborough Hospital.
AARC members plan to send volunteers “roaming through several towns” to locate dead zones for radio communication. Don Cusson, Marlborough’s Emergency Management Agency Director, will provide topographic maps to guide the efforts which are slated to begin on May 21, 2007 and continue into June.
A map of radio coverage is mandated for emergency preparedness for all hospitals in Massachusetts.
