5 Minutes Before

Attention all stations. The Sacramento Valley Multi-city CERT net will begin on the K6MVR repeater at 20:00 hours local time. Thank you in advance for the use of this frequency. This is NAME, CALLSIGN, net control for this evening and standing by for the net.

Introduction

Good evening, this is the Sacramento Valley Multi-City Community Emergency Response Team net. I am NAME, CALL, net control for this evening. This net is for Sacramento Valley CERT teams and residents to discuss aspects of community supported emergency operations in the greater Sacramento area. It meets every Sunday night at 20:00 hours on the K6MVR repeater on a frequency of 147.000 MHz, and a minus offset with a CTCSS tone of 136.5 hertz.

Is there any emergency or priority traffic that needs to be handled first?

  • [pause and listen for 10 seconds for any emergency traffic that needs to be handled]

Every week we will have a discussion topic or question for net participants to respond to, about CERT related activities and skills, emergency preparedness, fictitious situations to consider or about current events within the Sacramento Valley. These discussion topics and simulations are designed to promote thought and discussion. As a reminder, CERT teams never self deploy and always take actual actions and direction from their overseeing agency. After roll call, we will ask each station to respond to the question and hold a discussion based on it. After roll call and discussions, we will open the net to any stations with other announcements or traffic.

Today’s question is:

Tell us a question you might ask someone you were assigned to assess their medical condition in a triage situation. Assume this isn't a mass casualty instance and you have more than just 30 seconds to do the assessment (ie, more in-depth questions are encouraged). I'll given an example during my checkin slot.

Now we will begin CERT team roll calls, grouped by participating City CERT teams. We will take any late or missing members after roll call finishes. After roll call, we will call for visiting stations.

We now ask Davis City CERT members to check into the net.
