    National Level Mass Care Exercise Registration

    JCARES is participating in the NLE Mass Care exercise on Wednesday, August 24, 2016. It represents all aspects receiving, sheltering, and feeding evacuees from the eastern side of the state following a 7.7 earthquake in the NMSZ (New Madrid Seismic Zone). In a real world situation the KC area could receive as many as 250,000 evacuees.

    Eastern Jackson County and the City of Independence will operate an Evacuee Reception Center, 3 shelters, 2 Point of Distribution (PODs) and a feeding kitchen.

    The hours of operation will be from 8 am to 5 pm.

    Amateur radio will play a major role in the communications between the locations of the exercise. It is important that we can provide adequate staffing at the locations. VHF, UHF and APRS will play a part in addition to possibly some digital.

    Please click on the following link to register for this exercise:

    https://form.jotform.com/62122741878156

    If you are unable to use the on-line registration please download the form from this link and email to <w0krf@att.net> NLE Registration Form

    Thank you

    I will ask that you plan on bringing a lunch and I will supply coffee, water and soda for the class.  If you have any questions please contact me.  This will qualify for CERT training for all CERT members.   I would like to have all those who would like to sign up to the class have your information to me by December 31, 2015 by noon. 

     

    Thank you and Merry Christmas!
