IS THE SHINGLETOWN EMERGENCY RADIO PLAN? Read HERE
use Plain English for EMERGENCY TRAFFIC (E.G., A "FIRE
use the SER Q Codes for rapid reporting and mapping for
situational awareness (e.g., no electricity, no phone,
earthquake magnitude, etc...).
the SER system, we can map over 100+ square miles of area in
approx 25 minutes and know which neighborhoods have no ability
to dial 911 or receive a reverse 911 call, no electricity, no
phone, no internet, need snow chains to gain access, earthquake
magnitude and if area needs assistance, PLUS each neighborhood
will have conducted a brevity fire watch report,
etc... . In this approximate time period, each
participating neighborhood has conducted its own individual net
(on its allocated non ham emergency frequency), and each
neighborhood summary report has been relayed into the Ham Net
(by Hams). All such neighborhood reports are then summarized and
mapped within approximately 25 minutes. During this same time
frame we handle emergency traffic; and Net Control provides
recommendations as to action or non action plans. Our emergency
Fire Nets coordinate multiple tactical stations, and map the
location of the fire, wind direction, proximity to
neighborhoods, and more.
for those hung up on the "Plain English do nothing
loop", the SER PLAN USES BOTH PLAIN ENGLISH AND Q-CODES
(EACH WITH A DIFFERENT PURPOSE). You can't do what we do in the
time we do it!
SER Plan works. So what is your plan of action? Do you
practice weekly? The SER Plan does. Do you actually have an
operating PLAN in place that coordinates multiple neighborhoods
so 12+ independent nets are all operating at the exact same
time. The SER Plan does. So, stop talking and please join in.
