North Shore ARES to provide LIMITED support to Peabody EMA for Firefighter Funeral Procession 12/30/11

Hello to all…

Attention all North Shore Amateurs! North Shore ARES has been contacted by the City of Peabody Emergency Management department to provide LIMITED support during the funeral procession of the fallen Peabody Firefighter being held on Friday, December 30th from 7:00am until approximately 1:00pm.

This will be a relatively easy and informal event to support. All that is required is any amateur interested in attending the event is asked to bring their HT’s along with them and tune to the 145.47 (-) 136.5 PL NS1RA Danvers Repeater. We will also attempt to monitor the 146.88 (-) 118.8 Salem repeater as well in the event we run into any issues on the Danvers frequency. As with previous events in the City of Peabody, we will be looking for the following information…

– Check-in with us to tell us you are along the funeral procession route and let us know your location.
– Check-out with us when you leave.
– Watch out for Health and Safety…if you see something that requires attention…let us know!

Net Control will be operating at an undisclosed location. Due to the nature of the event, we are unable to discuss it over the air…so please do not ask, nor discuss it on air.  Also, please dress appropriately/respectfully for the procession (and the weather) if you will be along the route.  If you have any questions about this event, please let either me or Eric-KA1NCF know and we will do our best to answer them for you.

Thanks again to all for their continued help and support of North Shore ARES.
