Fall 2018 SET
Saturday October 13, 2018 members of the Saginaw County ARES group participated in a
local and State of Michigan simulated emergency exercise. The purpose
of this exercise was to upgrade and test the voice, packet and HF
capabilities of our ham radio system. We were also observed by a member of
the MMR training staff on our operation and capabilities at 911.
Test 911 voice, packet and HF stations, use Outpost and 213 form
Test Cooper ER voice and packet station, use Outpost and 213 form
Test St Mary’s ER voice and packet station, use Outpost and 213 form
- Send ICS-202 form via HF to State EOC as part of the state exercise
Also the State of Michigan department of emergency management conducted a
state exercise using the communications room at the SEOC. ICS-202
message forms were sent via packet
and digital mode Olivia 8-500 to
the state EOC. The purpose of this exercise was to test the viability of
passing traffic in forms other them voice modes. Both our messages were
received at the state EOC.
