Radio group meets Thursday
The Sierra Intermountain Emergency Radio Association (SIERA) will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Carson Valley United Methodist Church, 1375 Centerville Lane in Gardnerville. David Wiltse, disaster response coordinator for the Northern Nevada Red Cross chapter, will be the speaker.
This shapes up to be an extremely informative meeting, considering the important role played by the Red Cross in the Waterfall fire and more recent forest fire disasters. Many local volunteer radio operators played a communications role for the Red Cross during these recent events. The role of the backup radio communicator will be more prevalent in the future as responding agencies recognize the absolute necessity for accurate and precise communications, presented in a timely manner. SIERA accepts this increased responsibility with professionalism and enthusiasm.
To finish off the month of November SIERA will meet for a social breakfast at Grandma Hattie’s at 8 a.m. Nov. 27. The club meets in Hattie’s private facilities, 2811 S. Carson Street, Carson City.
All interested parties are invited and encouraged to attend the SIERA meeting and breakfast. For information or directions contact Dick Young at (775) 749-5545 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
