5 Minutes Before
Attention all stations. The Sacramento Valley Multi-city CERT net will begin on the K6MVR repeater at 20:00 hours pacific 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.
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 pacific time on the K6MVR repeater on a frequency of 147.000 MHz, with a minus offset and a CTCSS tone of 136.5 hertz.
Is there any emergency or priority traffic that needs to be handled before we begin the net?
- [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 topics and simulations are designed to promote thought and discussion. As a reminder, CERT teams never self deploy and should always take actual actions and direction from their overseeing agency. After roll call, we will ask each station that checked in 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:
How does your city make use of both city provided radios simultaneously with ham radios when deployed on CERT callouts. Include any discussion about what you think works and what doesn't with respect to dual-radio communication if two types are in use.
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.
- bike race and volume and ear piece
We now ask Sacramento Metro Fire CERT members to check into the net.
We now ask Woodland CERT members to check into the net.
We will do visitor checkins in a moment, but first are there any late members of Sacramento Valley CERT teams, or CERT members that aren’t on the roster that would like to check into tonight’s net?
Handle any late checkins
This is [NAME], [CALLSIGN] net control operator.
We will now accept visitor checkins to the Sacramento Valley Multi-City CERT net. You do not need to be affiliated with a CERT team to check into our net, all visitors are welcome. If you're a visiting station that would like to check in, please come now with your name, callsign, and location.
We will now move into the discussion portion of this net. We will first run through the roster of CERT members that have checked in and ask each station to respond to today's topic. Afterward we’ll open the discussion to all stations for additional comments.
- [Run through the roster of check-ins and record answers above]
Are there any CERT members or guests that wish to make additional comments related to tonight's discussion topic? We will do general announcements after the discussion period.
- [Add any additional comments to the notes above]
Are there any net participants with announcements, CERT activities, event reports or who have other traffic for the net?
