Hello to all….
MEMA Region Two will be having its region RACES hurricane exercise on Monday June 4th, 2007 from 7-9 PM. As has been done in past years, the drill scenario will be taken statewide by broadening the Region Two scenario and will include the State EOC and other MEMA Regions participating as RACES. ARES, SKYWARN and MARS partners will also participate in the exercise. Operations will be active at the NWS Taunton Forecast office for the exercise.
Region Two will use a special reporting form as they have done in previous years while the remaining RACES participants along with ARES, SKYWARN and MARS will use tactical messages, NTS and their traditional forms of traffic to handle messaging. Scenario details for RACES Operators in Region Two will be handled through a briefing at Region Two Headquarters. For the remainder of the participants and controllers in the state, information will be provided via the web and email over the next week to week and a half.
Thanks to all for their support of this exercise!
