In any emergency, the SCC volunteer first responder groups automatically self-activate in accordance
with emergency plans previously
inter-group communications (e.g.; from Patrol to EMS) or have the ability to contact the EOC.
This is where the SCC/KP amateur radio clubs fit in. The prime function of the SCC/KP amateur radio
clubs is to provide communication
Kings Point ARC [W4KPR] will monitor HF traffic between EOC and SERT-Tallahassee and stand by as backup HF station for the County. KP ARC will also serve as backup VHF station (if needed) to KE4ZIP
When commercial radio/television announces the possibility of an emergency involving the immediate area, members of the radio clubs should begin monitoring the SCC repeater frequency (147.225) and the Hillsborough EOC frequency (147.105) on a frequent basis. At this point the following will occur --- :
Planned and Unplanned Emergencies
Advanced warning for this type of disaster is given days ahead of the onset. The following sequence will be used to activate all radio personnel.
Emergencies such as explosions, tanker fires, anhydrous ammonia leaks, etc, - which are not expected - will be handled in the same manner as above. Any member finding out about such an emergency should start a "calling tree" to alert operators to tune to the 147.225 VHF net.
Flexibility is the keynote in these emergency procedures. No two emergencies will be exactly the same and the system must be able to respond to these changes. This procedure is based upon the actions of the EOC. Assistance may also be requested from other organizations such as the Salvation Army or United Way directly; a nd we will be required to make the necessary adjustments in the above procedures.
