Please join the Region 2 National Preparedness Division for a webinar on how an amateur radio can be a useful tool before, during and after disasters.
Historically, amateur radio has been a valuable resource in the Response and Recovery phases of many disasters, providing expedient communications when standard public safety and commercial telecommunications infrastructure has been severely impacted or completely overwhelmed. This webinar will provide guidance to Emergency Managers on establishing a viable, NIMS compliant,  AUXCOMM  (Auxiliary Communications) program as part of your Emergency Operation Plan. Learn how to add the ready resource of amateur radio as a component to your ESF-2.

Who should attend? Whole community with a particular emphasis on Local, State, and Federal Emergency Managers, CERT Program Leaders, Health Departments, and NGO’s.
