2016 Simulated Emergency Test Report

Attached are the official SET reports that have been sent to the state and the ARRL for our 2016 SET Exercise. We had seven individuals participate in a fun event that also helps us train when disaster does strike and we rely on skills in handling traffic and communicating with local public service agencies. We hope to involve more agencies and local amateurs in 2017.

Alabama #1 in ARES Activity – 2015 Simulated Emergency Test

2015’s Simulated Emergency Test (SET) was a great success for JCAR, it was the first time Jackson County has been involved in the annual exercise. Jackson County paired with Madison County for a simulated train wreck. The exercise went very well and was a great learning experience and a ton of fun. Our combined counties finished 4th in overall ARES Activity and 3rd in Section/Local Nets. The totals are below (from July QST):

Section Totals

Alabama – 8833 points – Top Spot in ARES Activity

Alabama – 2766 points – 3rd in Section Local Nets

 

County Totals

Great work and a huge thank you to everyone that participated! Lets get ready for this year’s SET Exercise!
