First ACES Basic Course in Whatcom County, WA

The first ACES-Basic certification class held in Whatcom County, Washington concluded with all 14 attendees completing the program. Thanks to logistical support from the Whatcom County Sheriff's Office and the Blaine Police Department, the course was hosted at the North Whatcom Fire / Whatcom County Sheriff's substation. Organized by Whatcom County Sheriff's Office Auxiliary Communications Service Director Brian Lawler, KN0N, and assisted by Kelly and Joyce Kiniski, the course took place over a 3 day weekend. Course costs were covered by the agencies who sponsored attendees. Many of the students stayed for the additional train the trainer module to be available to assist with future class offerings in the area. For a full write-up, see Brian's blog.

Oregon ACES participates in Portland UASI CERT Rodeo

Oregon ACES was invited to the annual UASI CERT Rodeo held in Sherwood to provide a training module on communications.  A special program was developed to introduce CERT members to Amateur Radio and to educate them on basic communications skills and concepts.  It also included a presentation of advantages and disadvantages of FRS and GMRS radios as well as tips for optimizing their use. The rodeo is structured as 10 groups of CERT members rotating through different stations, each about 35 minutes in length.  Students were introduced to Amateur Radio as a communications solution for CERT operations, and provided resources for licensing and training.  Since some of the CERT members were already licensed, several took the opportunity to sign up for the ACES Basic course offered in Hillsboro.
