We would like to encourage the EOC of any city or town that is served by one of our participating hospitals to join the Net. We also extend an invitation to any RACES or ARES member to check in during the NET.

We are always looking for more groups or organizations to join and run the Net. If you are interested please let us know. Our goal is to rotate Net Control practice and the experience among as many groups as possible.

Any hospital wishing to join the net that that needs assistance with equipment or personal should contact us at ssharc@gmail.com or Carl Aveni at caave@peoplepc.com . We can help in getting your location on the air.
