Role in preparedness?

 

  • Monitor local emergency services
  • Monitor “ham chat” on local repeaters
  • Monitor NOAA weather radio
  • Communicate with other local preppers or survival groups
  • Keep in constant contact with security patrols
  • Gain inside knowledge of how emergency services respond to disasters by getting involved in ARES or similar groups

PODCAST CHALLENGE

  • Figure out what type of radio would best suit your needs, and buy a pair.  Even if it’s just a pair of Midland FRSs.
