Public Demo of Emergency Communications June 26-27, 2010

In Culver City, the Culver City Amateur Radio Emergency Service (CCARES) will demonstrate Amateur Radio at it its Emergency Operations Center behind Fire Station 1, located at 9600 Culver Blvd., on June 26, beginning at 11 a.m. and continuing until June 27 at 11:00 a.m.. The public is invited to come see ham radio’s new capabilities and learn how to get their own FCC radio license.
Culver City’s amateur radio “hams” will join with thousands of operators worldwide this weekend showing off their emergency capabilities  June 26 and 27. Over the past several years, the news has been full of reports of ham radio operators providing critical communications during emergencies in towns across America including the California wildfires, winter storms, tornadoes and other events world-wide.

The Culver City Amateur Radio Emergency Service (CCARES) was started 15 years ago in May, 1995. Since August 14, 1995, CCARES has been providing disaster communications to Culver City. Both CCARES and the Culver City Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) are essential components of the written disaster plan for Culver City.

The public will have a chance to meet and talk with Culver City’s ham radio operators and see for themselves what the Amateur Radio Service is about. Showing the newest digital and satellite capabilities, voice communications and even historical Morse code, hams from across the USA will be holding public demonstrations of emergency communications.
