The huge local fires of 2003 and 2007 struck Poway and its neighbors with feelings of unpreparedness, chaos, and desires to become more prepared. During an emergency, an important communication vehicle for the PNEC is their use of amateur radio operators (hams).


To assist in emergency communications, an Emergency Response System [EMS] Trailer is being planned to provide local communications and coordination when and where they are needed to the EOC and nearby communities when other communications are unavailable.
We need YOUR help to fund this important community resource! Your contribution is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
