Join Be Ready Orcas on Wednesday, May 15, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the Eastsound Firehall for a free and informative community discussion about disaster preparedness! This month we will be talking about communication systems and how to prepare yourself, your household and your community for natural disaster.
Greg Hancock will be giving an overview of the Emergency Broadcast System and how amateur radio operators can help out during emergencies and disasters.
These questions and more will be answered:
• What will happen to cell phone service, landlines and internet access during a disaster?
• What are our backup communications options for warning, rescue and response?
