Committee Members Needed for 2018 Hamfest

It’s time to start planning for the 2018 ARRL Dakota Division Convention and RRRA Hamfest. This is the largest Hamfest in North Dakota drawing attendees from 3 states and 1 Canadian province. Committee members are needed to plan and run this major fund raising activity for our club. Lots of volunteers will make the work easy for everyone. Planning meetings will begin June 10th.

The Hamfest Committee will use a mailing list for coordination and to assist the planning process. A shared folder is available to committee members at the RRRA Groupware Server for document sharing and archiving.

Hamfest Committee volunteers are asked to subscribe to the hamfest mailing list so that they can stay informed and be a part of the conversation. Returning volunteers must re-subscribe to the hamfest list to confirm their participation.

CERT Training In Fargo June 2018

The Fargo Cass Public Health Emergency Preparedness & Response Division will conduct a summer Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training beginning June 6. CERT is an All-Hazard approach to train and educate citizens in case of a large or small-scale disaster. Following a major disaster, first responders who provide fire and medical services will not be able to meet the demand for these services. CERT training provides life-saving skills and techniques for people who will rely on each other for help in the time of need.
