2017 Poway Emergency Fair Photos

The 2017 Poway Emergency Fair was well-attended and a great source of information on emergency preparedness. In addition to First Responders, community service organizations, and local providers of products and services, Amateur Radio operators conducted an “Extreme Fair Weather Drill” to demonstrate the use of Ham Radio in an emergency.

Smoke Alarm Installation Day was a Success!!

Almost 100 smoke alarms were installed in the Poway Royal Estates neighborhood. Thanks to Mayor Steve Vaus, the San Diego Red Cross, Poway Fire Department, and the many volunteers who participated for making Poway safer.

Amateur Radio Operators from the Poway NEC were on hand to assist with communications between the Command Center and the installation teams, and were able to redirect teams on-the-fly and save a lot of unnecessary trips.
