Trainings at meetings, date TBD:
Table Top Exercise on how we get deployed.
ICS 100, 200, 700, 800: What’s in it for me? Why do we need to take those courses when we don’t seem to use them?
Upcoming/potential projects and exercises.
We need to do some nighttime testing with HF. We also need to find a way to establish a VHF/UHF link to Spokane and other surrounding areas.
Event idea: do a non-repeater exercise to determine who can talk to who on what equipment.

- Red Cross is looking for duty officers to help dispatch when there is an emergency—typically, a house fire. Commitment is for 9 shifts per month, 6 hours per shift. There will be an informational meeting on Feb. 7. Contact Autumn for more information, [email protected].
