CONTROL SUMMARY:            

All Stations and Areas reporting  QXA;  no exceptions. 

CONTROL RECOMMENDATION: 

 NO ACTION                                                            

 

AFTER ACTION.

We are doing a great job!  On 2/22/2024, we had 23 reports from 4 different neighborhoods (spanning an approximate linear distance of  9 miles) which were all mapped, summarized and concluded with Control making the recommendation of “no action” based on the reports. Recently we had a station report all the way from Redding (mobile) approximately 24 miles east of the Village. Our SER Nets have emergency infrastructure set up and running during the entire net (i.e., Control, Backup, Mapping, 160 TC, Cal Fire 20, 55 silent, and 58 silent). 160 TC is a tactical for emergency last resort capability to reach Cal Fire when all phone systems are totally down (e.g., no land line, no cell, etc…). Only select stations have this. Mapping is recording and summarizing all reports. Cal Fire 20 is monitoring Cal Fire Dispatch. The Silent tacticals are monitoring the Ham frequency portion of the SER Plan. All of this was set up, and placed in full operation while receiving and processing substantive neighborhood reports, and then all deactivated within 12 minutes. Great Job Emergency Communications TEAM.

 Reminder:  Please don’t provide your report until CONTROL advises you to “go”. During this net, 3 reports had to be repeated because a report was given out of turn (station had not been told to “go” by Control, Backup or a Relay Station).  The two reports in process were blocked and the 3rd report wasn’t heard. All three had to be repeated because control stations (Control and Mapping) couldn’t copy any of them. This took about 2 minutes and during an emergency (e.g., raging wildfire), this would not be good.  Remember, you may not hear conversation because of your location. If you just start giving your report you are blocking other communications and you aren’t even being heard. That is why we use Control, Backup and provide for Relays and advise stations to “go”. An exception would be emergency traffic. In that case a station with emergency traffic would wait for a break in communications, and say “emergency traffic” and then all stations are to standby. Control stations would then advise the “emergency traffic” to “Go” and the traffic would be worked under our specific emergency traffic procedures.

 Thus, in summary:  

1. Please do not give your tactical until Control station says  “next”. 

 2. Please don’t give your full report until Control states for you to “GO” (e.g., :  “Foxtrot 1, go”).  The reason is that if you merely start talking because you don’t hear anyone on frequency, you may be blocking another station who is communicating with Control, Back up, or a relay station which you don’t hear. This means that none of the reports get copied by Control, and they all have to be repeated.  We are in rough terrain and covering a large area, so you most likely will not hear all stations involved. That is why we use Relays and Back up.

At the end of your report be sure and state “end of report”  or  “out”.  This way Control station(s) know you have finished.

 Great job Emergency Communications TEAM!

CONTROL SUMMARY:            

All Stations and Areas reporting  QXA;

 no exceptions. 

CONTROL RECOMMENDATION: 

 NO ACTION                                                            

 

AFTER ACTION:   

At the end of your report be sure and state “end of report”  or  “out”.  This way Control station(s) know you have finished.

 Also, please do not give your tactical until Control station says  “next”.  If you merely start talking just because you don’t hear anything on frequency, you may be walking on another station who is communicating with Control, Back up, or  a relay station which you don’t hear. This means that such report may have to be repeated.  We are in rough terrain and covering a large area, so you most likely will not hear all stations involved. That is why we use Relays  and Back up.

 Procedure:  Back up will TX and deactivate at the end of Net (i.e., as instructed by Control and will be the last station to “deactivate” just before Control deactivates the Net).  If we also use (for example)  “55 relay” and/or “58 relay”, such stations will  TX and “deactivate” as instructed by Control (e.g., “…55 relay deactivated”), but will likewise not advise that the net is deactivated.  Rather it is only Control that actually Deactivates the Net.
