1). Following up from our preparedness discussion in August, we are asking that each WCARES member finish their “Personal Family Emergency plan” by the time of this meeting. Remember, this is part of our Training Certificate.
2). a review with Bob and the other ham radio operators concerning their recent experience of hearing a distress call and the procedures that they went through /results of their efforts. We are tying this into what might we be expected to perform in a similar experience, importance of scanning on a daily basis etc.
