On Wednesday (9/7/2011) afternoon a call was put to assist with the record flooding throughout Montgomery County.
A sincere thank you from Dwight Schwabrow, Director of the Montgomery County Emergency Management, was extended to all who assisted during the tragic event. We would like to acknowledge and recognize the following hams for helping during the event: W2PR, KR2L, N2KAE, K2ALS, WA2EZ, KC2WGU.
These volunteers provided critical and essential radio communications, such as lock level readings for the locks located between Amsterdam and Ft. Plain.
After overcoming some challenges, the ham volunteers were able to provide timely information to the EOC. This information was critical to the operation of the EOC and helped determine where to allocate the appropriate support.
