The DEC Advisory

The DEC advisory issued January 21, 2021:

[SLV] [All] 6 Day Warning Possible Activation for storm next week

This is a 6 Day Warning for a possible activation for a storm next week.

I was just notified by the county that the storm that is moving in next week Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday is expected to drop a lot of rain on us.  Predictions are currently over the warning notification levels and debris flows will probably happen. 

As we all know these long range forecasts can change quickly for our area but we need to be prepared if it does happen. 

Please take this time to make sure your equipment is in good working order. Do you have the supplies you need?  Are you ready to be deployed?

Quick reminder of the new frequency list that is on our website that was released in October. Now is a good time to update your radio or radios to match that new list if you haven’t done so already. We have made it very easy for you to import into Chirp or RT-Systems radios with many models presetup and ready to go.

I will keep everyone up to date as I get more information.
