Attending the Washington County Fire Association meeting on 2/5/19, ADEC George Odom K4ETN presented the Fire Departments with instructions for ordering the amateur radio equipment for each station.
Once the equipment is shipped to each department, antenna installations will be scheduled and the base station packages programmed and bench tested prior to deployment.
A recruitment flyer was handed out to each department explaining how firefighters and other department personnel may obtain their amateur radio license and become ARES members. AEC Chason Freeman KN4MWR is the liaison for recruitment in the Fire Service.
More to come as things develop.
