Amateur Radio Operators Thrive When All Else Fails

“We don’t do much until something goes really wrong.”
That’s how Donald Shurtleff describes the role of the Amateur Radio Emergency Service, a group of licensed amateur radio operators who volunteer their time and equipment to plan for and respond to disasters in Oregon. 
In an emergency, public safety responders need to prepare for the failure of communication devices and systems, including loss of internet connections, email and cell service. Amateur radio technology may not have the sophistication of most modern public safety communications devices, but they offer more reliability because they are less dependent on power grids and wireless networks, both of which can fail in a disaster.
“Public safety communication has become very sophisticated but also very complicated,” Shurtleff said. “That’s a good thing, but it’s also risky. When the ‘Big One’ hits, all that technology could stop working. That’s where we come in.”
ARES volunteers undergo emergency training provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency so that they can operate seamlessly in the Incident Command System structure that is used by emergency response agencies across the country.
Deschutes County Emergency Manager Sgt. Nathan Garibay said the group provides a valuable service. “Our auxiliary communications volunteers provide countless hours of time to our local community,” Garibay said. “They epitomize the auxiliary communications motto of ‘when all else fails.’”

  3. I am bold enough among many others to state that there is now a potent cure to this sickness but many are unaware of it. I discovered that I was infected with the virus 3 months ago, after a medical check-up. My doctor told me and I was shocked, confused and felt like my world has crumbled. I was dying slowly due to the announcement of my medical practitioner but he assured me that I could leave a normal life if I took my medications (as there was no medically known cure to Herpes). I went from churches to churches but soon found that my case needed urgent attention as I was growing lean due to fear of dying anytime soon. In a bid to look for a lasting solution to my predicament, I sought for solutions from the herbal world. I went online and searched for every powerful trado-medical practitioner that I could severe, cos I heard that the African Herbs had a cure to the Herpes syndrome. It was after a little time searching the web that I came across one Dr Itua(A powerful African Herbal Doctor), who offered to help me at a monetary fee. I had to comply as this was my final bus-stop to receiving a perfect healing. My last resolve was to take my life by myself, should this plan fail. At last it worked out well. He gave me some steps to follow and I meticulously carried out all his instructions. Last month, to be precise, I went back to the hospital to conduct another test and to my amazement, the results showed that negative,Dr Itua Can As Well Cure The Following Desease…Cancer,Hiv,Herpes, Hepatitis B,Liver Inflammatory,Diabetis,Fribroid, Dercum,fibromyalgia,Get Your Ex Back,Als,SYPHILLIS,Genetic disease,Epilepsy, Parkinson's disease.Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva.You can free yourself of this Herpes virus by consulting this great African Herbal Doctor via this e-mail: drituaherbalcenter@gmail.com or call and whatsapp him on +2348149277967 He will help you and his herb medication is sure. he has the cure on all disease .You can talk to me on INSTAGRAM..tashamoore219....
