Planning for the Shake Out – Advanced Topics – 13 April 2023

MARC members met and discussed our club's involvement with the Great Utah Shake Out, scheduled for 20 April 2023.  We identified several action items (see below) for the club to work on.  Here is a recording of the presentation:

Here are the action items we discussed:

  1. have a presentation about the SAFE Neighborhood program and the JIT kits located at each school

    I have put together a very short presentation... please consider printing it out, taking it to your local school, and presenting it to your school's principal and/or PTA.  You can find the presentation on the club web site here:

  2. provide access to the SLCo ARES collection of files and materials that were distributed last year and should be included in each JIT kit:
  3. have an emergency procedures net on the day of the ShakeOut

    Please check out our eComms Protocol page on the club web site.  On the day of the Shake Out (this Thursday, 20 April 2023 at 10:15 AM) we will begin a drill emergency net as described here:

  4. talk to the city engineer about the stability of our repeater tower
  5. talk to the city council/mayor's office about our emergency power plan for the repeater
  6. survey our membership:  who has equipment that will operate on 1.25m (i.e. our club repeater) AND who doesn't

    we took an informal survey during the last Sunday evening net and also would like people to fill out this form:
