Cupertino July 4 Fireworks

Date: 07/04/17 Start: 5:00 PM End: 11:00 PM Location: Cupertino
Credential Credit (What's this?): Yes

Cupertino is bringing back its annual fireworks show on July 4, after a two-year hiatus. We're looking for Amateur Radio volunteers to assist us with communications. Volunteers will act as eyes and ears for the Sheriffs Office and monitor activity at the viewing venues, street closures and other locations. This is a low-key event ideal for first time volunteers to participate. The operational period will be 17:00 until 23:00 on July 4th. Please notice that this is a fairly long assignment and you are expected to work the entire event. Please plan on one assignment for the entire event.  


This is intended and expected be a MAC qualifying event. This is also a city activation, and all volunteers will also be sworn in as Cupertino DSWs for the event. Some MAC evaluations will be offered. If you are interested in an evaluation, please sign up for the appropriate assignment and email about your desire for an evaluation. 


Further information will be forthcoming in email for those who have signed up. Please email if you have any questions.


NOTE 1: Evaluations will be available only for registered SCC MACs.  If you are not in the MAC program and are interested, please read the information available at the SCC MAC web page and consult with your city EC.


NOTE 2: In order to receive MAC credit for this event, all participating County MACs must follow SCC program procedures, including following Resource Net procedures for mobilization and demobilization, filling out all required forms 214, 309, 213, etc. and turning in those forms at the end of the event, as well as signing in and out on the 211.
