DATE CHANGE!!! Siren Test Volunteer Sign Ups Are Now Being Accepted

The Annual Douglas County Visual Siren Test Cancelled on Saturday March 23rd  Possibly to be held on  March 30th.

With all the flooding in the region, Douglas County EMA has of course been busy and will continue to be.    – IF there is a siren test, it will not be March 23rd, it is still quite tentative on March 30th.

 

This exercise is to place a radio operator at each siren location to observe it during activation.  This will confirm that it is rotating as expected, that the siren is sounding properly and that it is in good repair.    With more than 100 sirens in Douglas County all available hams are needed.      This year there will be only be two soundings.  The first one at 11:00 am, and the second at 11:30 am.     If everything goes off as scheduled the net should be secured by 12:00 noon.     This is a great event for your first volunteer experience or just getting back into the community service arena!    You don’t have to be registered with ARES to participate.
