Sun City MacDonald Ranch hosts Preparedness Expo
Sun City MacDonald Ranch, another Del Web community, recently bolstered it's emergency awareness when they hosted their first "Preparedness Exposition".
Dubbed, "Get Ready. Stay Ready" the expo is slated to become an annual event. Organizers focused on 28 topics of emergency readiness in their bid to help their neighbors be prepared for possible emergencies and disasters. One of these topics dealt with the flow of information and communications following a disaster and the important role which amateur radio plays in keeping these lines open.
ARRL Southern Nevada District Emergency Coordinator Jay Peskin-KE7EGO and Sun City Emergency Preparedness Committeeman Gary Jacobs-WA4PDM were on hand to introduce amateur radio to those in attendance and to answer questions about the role that hams play in helping their communities when disasters strike.
