All ARES operations in Alberta have been stood down by their respective agencies. ARES will remain on standby during the recovery process in the event of a communication failure and are called out. The temporary link between the SARA provincial linking system and the VE6HAT Medicine Hat Elkwater repeater will remain in place until recovery operations are complete. Please keep the system clear for Medicine Hat traffic as priority and all other traffic as secondary.

A big thanks go out for all the resource and personnel support offered across the province. And also a big thanks to all the operators that provided countless volunteer hours to support the served agencies with priority and emergency traffic. It has been expressed by AEMA that without our capability to deploy and adapt it would have made this disaster much more difficult to manage.

All EC/AEC's please think about debrief thoughts, learning's, and how we can improve for the next activation. A provincial debrief meeting will be held, date and venue to be confirmed and announced.
