Hello to all..
On behalf of the Eastern Massachusetts ARES staff, we’d like to take a moment to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Happy Holiday season! We have appreciated the support of all Amateurs who assisted in the mobilization for Irene in late August and those who stood-by to support Western Massachusetts ARES recovery efforts from the June 1st, 2011 tornado outbreak that affected Western and Central Massachusetts. We also thank all Amateur Operators whether they are in ARES or not who supported all the Public Service Events throughout the year including major events such as the Boston Marathon and the Walk for Hunger just to name a few events. We also thank all the RACES Radio Operators and Officers for their support of their local city and town emergency management as well as state emergency management. For those Amateur Operators that support SKYWARN whether they are in ARES or not, a separate holiday message has been posted via the following link:
As we move into 2012, we will be looking at doing Emergency Communications Workshops and we will have a presence at the Boxboro New England Division Amateur Radio Convention as we’ve done in past years. We will also be continuing to support hospitals and Non-Governmental Organizations such as the Red Cross and Salvation Army building upon the work done in 2011. We also encourage those involved in emergency communications or those that have an interest in weather to become SKYWARN trained to support the National Weather Service for those interested.
Again, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Happy Holidays to all! We look forward to working with everyone during 2012 and thanks for your continued support of ARES!
