MUNICIPAL COMMUNICATIONS TEST

All:
This is a heads up for the State Hurricane Exercise this year.
We are planning on doing a lot more with our ACS/ARES Group this time (YEAH!!)
Main Play Dates would be Wednesday the 18th for the Comms check and Shelter deployment
And then we would need to have staff on Thursday the 19th after the storm hits.
If you use Hurrevac I have attached an STM file that you can import that has the actual storm in it.
It is KIMO-PC – a cat 2 just before it hits but then a Cat 4 as it hits dead on Pinellas county
The sheet I have attached is a sample of what the cities are going to be doing as far as comms. which includes the Radio Room
Also EM is looking for us if we can pull together an actual shelter deployment drill.
Basically what would happen is:
1. Guys would show up and pickup radios
2. We would send to an actual shelter location
3. They would setup
4. Send Check-in and sample msg to EOC Radio Room
5. Pack up equipment and bring back to EOC and check back in.
EM is just wanting to test our process and procedures on this.
We have from now until week of May 16 to work on this but wanted to give you guys a heads up
