News from Around the County

The new communications officer from Oregon Emergency Management, Terry Pietras W7JOC, will be attending our May 28 ARES meeting. I am sure he will have a few words about OEM for us. It is an honor to have him attend one of our meetings. I think it shows a positive step forward.

Stevie Bullock from Multnomah County Emergency Management (MCEM) is back to work after several months off following an automobile accident. It is great to have him back. He has always been a huge supporter of MCARES and is our liaison with MCEM.

April was indeed a busy month with Walk MS and the statewide SET. The ARES communications trailer was used for both of these events. I think all the net controls enjoyed the new space in spite of the temporary tables and chairs. Thanks to everyone for volunteering your time for both of these events. We are very fortunate to have such an awesome ARES group.

Our next big event is the Disaster Relief Trials which is usually in July, however this year it looks like the event is being moved to October. We will let you know when we have a confirmed date.
