Earthquake Preparedness

equakeThis evening’s earthquake is a good reminder to be prepared for any disaster.

We do have a great article with suggestions for your modular “go kits” and can be found on the SOARA website here.  (Republished with permission.)

Also, please remember that after a quake to refrain use of repeaters/simplex for any emergency and damage traffic first.  Use should be short and allow plenty of room between communications for breaks.  Use of cell phone should be limited immediately following a quake, use SMS text messaging to check on loved ones instead of calling.

73 and good luck.  — Sean, AJ6B
