NH-ARES Academy – Openings for Hams Outside of the NH Section – Saturday 3/17/12 830 AM-400 PM at NH Fire Academy – Concord NH

Hello to all..

New Hampshire (NH) ARES ASEC for Operations and Training, Dave Colter-WA1ZCN, and the NH ARRL/ARES Section are hosting the NH-ARES Academy. The NH-ARES Academy is similar to the EMCOMM Workshops offered in the Eastern and Western Massachusetts sections but does a concurrent session strategy of topics over portions of the training. Dave has contacted me stating that they have opened the academy to Hams outside of the New Hampshire section. Sign-up information and classes being offered as part of the academy can be seen via the following link which is a 2-page PDF document:


The Basic Info on the date/time and location are listed below:

When: Saturday March 17th, 8:30am – 4:00pm
Where: NH Fire Academy, Concord, NH
Coffee and donuts in the morning, soda and coffee provided for lunch
BYO bag lunch, or dash out to a nearby restaurant

I will be attending the ARES Academy and will be there for some or all of the classes. I will also be teaching a class on SITREPs as requested by Dave-WA1ZCN. It should be worthwhile to see how the New Hampshire section does their training and we will try to incorporate some of their training and best practicies in the EMCOMM workshops we offer in our state. We hope some of you may take part in the NH-ARES Academy as space allows. Thanks!
