MWJN Radio Practice 8/6 & 8/13

Radio Communications - CERT Drill 2014

Radio Communications – CERT Drill 2014

Get Ready for the Drill on 8/19

FRS Radios – inexpensive  battery operated walkie-talkies – are the perfect tool for disasters.  We’ll be practicing on Sunday 8/6 and Sunday 8/13 from Noon – 4:00 PM.

We’re on Channel 13 if you want to test your radio – just call in. If you need help learning how to use the radio, come by 909 Oneonta Drive (near Olancha and 5 Points) for hands-on guidance either Sunday afternoon.

Don’t have a radio? We have some available for a suggested donation of $20 for one or $35 for a pair.  A little more than Home Depot, but will Home Depot teach you how to use it?
