Weather Watches and Warnings
If your area wants to put information on this page, please get hold of Val and I will get it put on. It must be kept current, so once the dangers have passed, please inform the webmaster asap.
Also, this ties in with your ARES Emergency Coordinators. So the more folks we have out there working with ARES and your local EMO the better.
Both these organizations are not there because they "feel" like it. They are there working to protect you and your neighbours. All radio operators during an emergency should be willing to use their radios to help out if you are asked. If you are just "rag-chewing" on the emergency frequencies, please have the common sense to switch frequencies. Thank You.

Unfortunately, winter is coming real soon, so let's drive careful out there folks. Take the Girl Guide Motto "Be Prepared."
