"Hurricane Chuck" Exercise Held

On April 15th Broward County Emergency Management hosted an exercise designed to test the communications capabilities between the EOCs in each municipality in the county and the Broward County EOC. Although this was not a general drill for the ham community to check in and send simulated messages as we normally do, the RACES staff was asked to participate, and some municipal EOC’s invited their local hams to participate at municipal EOCs as one of the communications mechanisms to be used.
