Steve AF7DD is stepping back from the Training Manager position, so once again I am filing that role. Thanks to Steve for all his service and hard work this past year. Steve will still be around and has some other projects he will continue to work on.
This year’s training calendar has been built around the needs of the county and the requests of our membership from the fall survey. We are only including training subjects pertinent to our ARES mission and so some of the requests have not been addressed. We do not use D-Star, IRLP, or Echolink. Those interested in these modes can seek information of these subjects from the local clubs, Google, YouTube, and the many ARRL publications and online resources.
Portland Bureau of Emergency Management has many excellent resources on their website regarding personal, family and neighborhood disaster preparedness. It is each ARES member’s responsibility to be as prepared as is possible and reasonable so that you and your family will be safe, and you will be able to serve when needed.
