Save the date - 25 May 2024

Red Cross is inviting Pennsylvania ARES, PEMA ACES, radio clubs and unaffiliated hams to participate in a joint exercise on May 25th. We've been hard at work preparing for the May National Mass Care Exercise (Keystone 6) and would like to leverage that infrastructure for a cross state Emcomm drill. Red Cross Emcomm Stations will be accepting check-ins on VHF, HF, Digital and Phone. Participants will be encouraged to deploy and demonstrate their Emcomm skills. Full details will be provided on May 23rd.
