Situational Awareness Monitoring
Situational Awreness is simply knowing what is happening.
Information enables us to make more intelligent or informed decisions.
During certain large scale events Marion County ARES comes together to purposely monitor:
...all to be extra aware of any potential need for Amatuer Radio assistance.
Typically in a metro area like Indianapolis this is primarily going to be weather related due to the cities wide availability of resources.
Our monitoring in this respect for specific activities is pre-emptive - although it could also be called upon after a large scale weather or other local event.
Monitoring will be done from the Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services Radio Room and in 1 hour shifts where we will have 2-3 stations monitoring specific resources to complete a current snapshot of what is going on in our area.
Will you make it? Let us know!
