Welcome to Anthony's wallpaper collection.
The Community Emergency Response Team
concept was created to encourage ham radio operators in local
communities to train in emergency communications and encourage them to
regularly practice using their radio equipment to help facilitate
communication between agencies such as Fire Departments, Sheriffs
departments, Police departments, EMS, FEMA, and other emergency
agencies who may be involved in Emergency Operations in their
communities after a natural disaster. If (when) Internet and cell
phones stop working, two-way radio may be the only way for local,
state, and federal agencies to coordinate urban search and rescue
(USAR) and emergency operations immediately after a storm.
Trained and licensed amateur radio operators in the Carteret
County area have assisted in many past disasters such as Hurricane
Katrina, Hurricane Dorian, Hurricane Floyd, and the floods caused by
these natural disasters.
When the need arises, licensed and
trained amateur radio operators volunteer and work in County Emergency
Operations Centers during natural disasters. The Carteret County Amateur Radio Society
supports local agencies with a fully equipped mobile emergency
communications trailer and volunteers operate a communications station
on the second floor of the Morehead City Police Department, at county
hurricane shelters, at our local fire departments, and at area town
halls. When the need arises and local police/ems/fire is
overwhelmed and volunteer assistance is needed, amateur operators in
Carteret County answer the call.
