County Wide Drill Planning Discussion

This webinar will be a discussion of activities and plans for ARES/RACES County Wide Exercises.  Can we create scenerios and activities that provide the most value and that encourage hams to attend.

Intended Participation:

ECs, AECs and others interested in the discussion and planning for County Wide Exercises.  Come with your ideas and thoughts.

General Exercise Guidelines to keep in mind: 

  • Provide activities for new and experienced hams
  • Provide opportunites for those wanting to earn credentials
  • Location flexibility (can we easily obtain a viable location)
  • Time frame (can the activities be accomplished in a reasonable time)
  • Are the activities realistic and do they teach/demonstrate best practices
