7. DHS AUXCOMM Course Hamvention week

I bring you greetings from Clark County, Ohio, celebrating 72 consecutive hours without a tornado!  Fun factoid – as of Wednesday morning far more tornadoes have struck Clark County this year (4) than the entire states of Kansas and Oklahoma combined (0)!  But they should catch up any time now.

Once again the US Department of Homeland Security is offering its Auxiliary Communications, or AUXCOMM course immediately prior to Hamvention.  It will be held May 14-16 at the Beavercreek, Ohio Courtyard by Marriott.

AUXCOMM teaches radio amateurs the skills needed to integrate into the National Incident Management System, or NIMS.  About 2500 hams have completed this three day course.

There are several prerequisites, and they must be completed and submitted for DHS review prior to the May 1st cutoff date for this session.  For more information, go to: https://hamvention.org/auxcomm/%20
