From Eastern Massachusetts ARRL...
Frank O’Laughlin, WQ1O, and the Cape Cod Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) team received high praise from the Barnstable County Commissioners for his hard work during the intense storms that impacted the Cape in March.
The ARRL Cape Cod and Islands ARES District Emergency Coordinator and the Cape Cod ARES team were awarded a Certificate of Recognition from Commissioners Ronald Beaty, Mary Pat Flynn, and Leo Cakounes at a Regional Emergency Planning Committee Meeting on August 1, 2018.
“I want to give thanks to all and especially to my crew who worked hard and long hours last winter during storm operations. Our group devoted several hundred person-hours to the operations,” writes WQ1O. “As Cape and Islands ARES insists on self sufficiency, our volunteers are self-equipped regardless if there is equipment on scene. This helps guarantee redundancy.”
