Volunteer List for Hurricane Florence – IF REQUESTED

Good Afternoon

ARRL WCF Section is now taking a list of communications teams (single operator or multiple operators) that would be willing to go to the areas affected by the impact of Hurricane Florence.  At the present time we do not have any requests for assistance but it would be prudent to have a working list, in case that help is requested.

Please take inventory of your assets that you have and reply to this email if you would be willing to travel to North Carolina or South Carolina.  Remember that any communications teams members must have had the appropriate FEMA courses (IS100, IS200, IS700, IS800) and be fully self-supporting for three to five days, as supplies in the affected area will not be available.

Please do not self-activate!
