Credential Credit (What's this?): No

Palo Alto OES has taken the lead, to run a new training element in Urban Shield, consisting of a CERT training exercise. 

Palo Alto OES putting the plan together and working to fill their exercise staff now, and there is a need for a handful of amateur radio operators similar to the County CERT exercise from the past years. Radio operators will support one of four Site Captains by operating a communications node at Site Command Posts, or at the Exercise Command Post. 

The exercise itself is a Bay Area event, and we are having CERT members participate from around the Bay.  We are also drawing the exercise staff, including amateur radio operators, from around the Bay as well. 

The Exercise is September 9th, at the Alameda County Fairgrounds, and will run from 0800-1700.  Information on Urban Shield Can be found at

This is not a Santa Clara County ARES/RACES event and participation is on a volunteer basis, only.
