    Good afternoon all,

     

    I have a First Aid and CPR training class scheduled for January 9, 2015 at the Platte County Resource Center EOC, 11724 NW Plaza Circle, Kansas City, MO 64153 from 0800 to 1700.   The class size on this will be set to 25.  If you are interested please send you full name, your home email (this is how you will get your certificate) and your home address.  I will forward all information to the instructors who will register you with American Red Cross.

     

    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!

    Ham Radio Support requested by Eric Ramsey on July 25th at Smithville Lake

    comments (1457)
    Posted by dcarpenter

    From Eric Ramsy;

    I recently attended a planning meeting for an event in which they requested ham radio support.

     

    Web site for the event: http://www.winforkctri.org/

     

    Location: Smithville Lake

     

    Anticipated race participants: 1000

    Anticipated crowd: 3000

     

    Event Date: July 25

    Mobile Command set up: Friday July 24 afternoon or evening and staff on Saturday July 25 from 7am to noon.

     

    Additional ARES posts:

    ·         Mobile Command – two to three

    ·         one as a shadow in the event support car

    ·         one or more at the bike turnaround

    ·         one or more at the transition point in sailboat cove

    See maps to get an idea of where these posts will be located.

     

    Primary purpose is to assist with communication due to potential for radios to be too busy or not working. Especially if an emergency needs to be communicated.

     

    So, need minimum of 5, prefer 8, 10, 12???

     

    Thanks for considering. Please let me know if ARES can support this request.

     

     

    Eric G. Ramsey

    Road work on I-29 to begin

    comments (850)
    Posted by dcarpenter

    Courtesy of KC Star; 

    Beginning April 21, crews will rehabilitate 12 bridges along the Interstate 29 corridor between Interstates 435 and 635. The start date was delayed a day, awaiting material delivery, according to MoDOT.

    The work will cause lane reductions, narrow lanes and ramp closures.

    Motorists are urged to use alternate routes during the six months, including I-435 and U.S. 169.

    Here is what will impact drivers:

    ▪ Two lanes of I-29 in each direction between Missouri 45/64th Street and 112th Street will remain open throughout the duration of the project.

    ▪ I-29 will be reduced to one lane in each direction at Missouri Route D/Cookingham Drive for 80 days.

    ▪ The ramp from eastbound Missouri 152 to southbound I-29 will close for the duration of the project.

    ▪ I-29 will narrow at bridge locations.

    ▪ There will be temporary closures on Route D/Cookingham Drive, 112th Street, Tiffany Springs Parkway, Barry Road, 72nd Street and Missouri 45/64th Street during off-peak hours.

    SkyWarn Repeater Change

    comments (898)
    Posted by dcarpenter

    SkyWarn will be using the 145.19 repeater for the foreseeable future. There is a 107.2 tone on the repeater. We would like as many people as possible to check in on Tuesday so we can check the coverage. I know it covers well into Johnson Co. but have not tested it in Wyandotte Co. The 146.70 repeater took a direct lightning strike last fall and has been out of service since. We are working on a replacement repeater and putting up the new antenna and hardline, but it probably will not be back until summer.
