Oregon ACES meets with State OEM

Oregon ACES has caught the eye of the Oregon State Office of Emergency Management (OEM). A program such as this has the potential to have a wide-scale positive impact on the people providing the backup emergency communications that OEM depends on in a disaster. At the request of the office, Daron N7HQR and Gordon WX7EM (Tillamook County EM and ARES EC) presented the details, status, and future of the program on May 21, 2010. OEM director Ken Murphy said that he thought the program looked encouraging and that it would be a resource for county emergency managers.
