Countywide Exercise & SET - Field Operations-Introductory

Date: 09/28/19 Start: 8:00 AM End: 1:00 PM Location: Edith Morley Park, Campbell
Credential Credit (What's this?): Yes

Overall Event:  This is a county-wide communications exercise focused on emergency communications.  It is designed to provide participants with valuable in-field operating experience.  It will include several fun and challenging assignments.  This event will also serve as our annual ARRL Simulated Emergency Test (SET) drill for 2019.

Scenario:  This is for those new to Field Operations. Two activities in one! Passing messages from a field location, such as a neighborhood CERT Command Post, quickly and correctly is an important communication skill. At this session you’ll do two activities: 1) practice off-air, to properly pace yourself so your messages are received without errors. 2) Gain radio experience sending and receiving both informal and formal Santa Clara County ICS-213 messages on the air. More experienced participants can go directly to activity 2. This session is ideal for new ARES/RACES operators and CERT Command Post radio staff who need a refresher.

Location:  Edith Morley Park, Campbell

DSW:  You need a County DSW registration to participate. If you do not have a valid County DSW registration you will be able to register for DSW at the event.
