35. National Preparedness Month Week 4

This fourth week of 2015 National Preparedness Month is devoted to Power Outages.  More information on this topic may be found on the following related websites: http://www.ready.gov/power-outage , https://beta.ready.gov/power-outage and www.ready.gov/kids/know-the-facts/power-outages .

I will not be available next week, but FEMA would like you to know that the culmination of National Preparedness Month on Wednesday, September 30th is National PrepareAthon! Day.  More on that event is available at website www.ready.gov/prepare .

Finally, don’t forget that the annual Simulated Emergency Test, or SET, is scheduled for Saturday, October 3rd.  The ARRL Ohio Section and Ohio ARES District 3 are scheduled to participate.  Stan Broadway, the Ohio Section Emergency Coordinator, discusses several goals in the current Ohio Section Journal http://arrl-ohio.org/sm/Section_News.html .
