11. ARES Connect

Greetings from Clark County, Ohio, with either two days or seven weeks without a tornado, depending on the outcome of two possible National Weather Service surveys in Pike Township.  Either way, Clark County clearly got off lucky this Memorial Day.


The Memorial Day Edition of the Ohio Section Journal went into some detail about why all of us should register on the ARES Connect site.  Over the years ARES members have gotten used to their county Emergency Coordinators and Section Emergency Coordinators submitting reports to track our ARES volunteer hours.  In District 3 161 members are registered on ARES Connect and hopefully most of these are already submitting their volunteer hours directly.  I submit my time checked in to various weekly ARES nets, and am scheduled to add several hours tomorrow for storm damage assessment.


To register on the Ohio ARES Connect site, go through this portal: https://arrl.volunteerhub.com/lp/oh/
