Hi everyone, Matt here W4ZYX,  I am an EMT-B with Calhoun County EMS (SC) and hold an Extra class license. My county maintains hf, vhf and uhf capabilities in its command center and we have a couple people licensed to operate in case there is a need including our director. I also am a radio operator with the state Emergency Operations Center when disaster calls. I also am a volunteer with SCHEART (South Carolina Healthcare Emergency Amateur Radio Team)

Happy New Year to all from Corvallis, Montana!  I've been a ham since the 70's - now KK7YM.  Have been active on and off, but would like to set up a small station again.  As for EMS, I was originally certified as an EMT-B in 1980 (with the big orange book) and worked as a volunteer for 15 years.  After a long absence I'm back in EMS, both as a volunteer with the county mountain search & rescue and on the local fire dept.  Be safe...have fun!

Hello group and welcome to new folks! Has anyone set up plans for
alternate communications in case your dept repeater or dispatch facility
go down? Any hams in dispatch who also carry a portable to work?
Be safe and watch out for fall weather!
