This notice from Jim Taylor, VA3KU, Amateur Radio Program Coordinator, Emergency Management Ontario, Provincial Emergency Operations Centre:
The 2009 province-wide Simulated Emergency Test (SET) will be conducted on Saturday Oct. 3 2009 from 09:00 to 15:00 and 19:00 to 21:00 hours.
All ARES groups are requested to participate in the province-wide SET. If your ARES group is unable to participate please have a group representative check into the network so your group can be registered as active during the province-wide SET.
The province-wide EOC test has been incorporated into the yearly SET for the past four years. This addition to the regular SET provides an opportunity for ARES groups that support communications for their local municipal emergency operations centre an opportunity to participate during regular operational hours and demonstrate to officials the ability to connect with the provincial emergency operations centre VE3EMO.
The EMO station will be activated on Wednesday Oct. 7 from 09:00 to 13:00 ET to test communications with municipal level EOC’s.
Full details are posted on the EMO ARES website:
