FEMA Region VI Operations
Greg Boren N5SKE
Is North Texas prepared in case of a major disaster? How well coordinated are our emergency communications?
We hold a discussion of the history of the FEMA’s Denton Federal Response Center,
the changes in FEMA's mission, current emergency communication capabilities and the
"Whole Community" approach as it relates to amateur radio emergency communications.
Included will be photos of past and present radio rooms & antennae along with many of the mobile communication vehicles.
Also, Greg will explain how FEMA monitors incidents and the triggers to engage Disaster Emergency Communication (DEC) resources along with the vehicles and tools used.
Come early and mingle. FREE coffee & cookies.
Hey, bring a guest! Ham it up.
