Hello to all..
The following is an updated Massachusetts Statewide Hurricane Drill – Hurricane Madison 2009 Exercise Participants Manual. This Manual is in Word and PDF Document format and can be seen at the links below:
The name of the hurricane was changed from Wanda to Madison to coincide with MEMA Region Two’s naming of the hurricane. The idea of updating the document with a graphical/tabular track of the hurricane using Hurrevac was dropped due to an all day activation of SKYWARN for severe weather on Sunday May 24th precluding the time needed to add that information to the document. The document has been updated with Winlink/Airmail resource information, page numbers for the document and other associated minor changes.
An exericse controllers document has been created for net controls/alternate net controls and coordinators for the exercise and has been updated with the hurricane name change and additional suggestions/corrections to that document. The ARES/RACES/SKYWARN Management team working with MEMA will get that distributed to all appropriate personnel along with the participants manual.
We hope to have a successful exercise with strong participation across the commonwealth. Thanks to all for their continued support of ARES, RACES and SKYWARN.
