Emergency Communication and Preparedness 




Where will you be when the disaster strikes?

This workshop will take you on a journey through personal and family preparedness, increasing the effectiveness of using a handheld radio during an Emergency/disaster, radio operations, and the psychological and environmental aspects of disaster support.

Along the way, we will talk about medical needs, shelter, water filtration and storage, food essentials, personal Go Kits, family communications, battery types, generators, solar power, digital modes, emergency setup and repairs, radio Go Kits, passing messages, and opportunities for improving your overall preparedness as well as your communications skills and abilities. One recurring emphasis will be on practicality and frugal use of your money.
