2/09/2007 - The Fall River Emergency Management Agency is working more closely with the BCRA than ever before. EMA Director Richard Aguiar has some exciting plans for our group, and has assured the BCRA that we are a fundamental part of the Fall River Emergency Management disaster plans. Rick has been attending frequent BCRA meetings and giving us regular updates to how he is planning to better integrate Amateur Radio communications into Fall River EMA plans. There are also plans for training exercises, and simulated disaster drills.
If you are interested in being part of this reinvigorated affiliation, please attend the next BCRA meeting and we can get you signed up.

Announcement, 1 minute before net is to start
Is there any business for the repeater before I take it for the net?
This is [your call sign], net control for the Fall River Amateur Radio Club ARES net. This net is held weekly on Thursday at

All check-ins and traffic are to be directed to net control.

We would like to thank the Bristol County Repeater Association and the WA1DGW trustee, KA1LH, for the use of the repeater for tonight’s net. We would also like to thank the stations who checked in, and the stations who stood by during this net.
