    When all else fails...

    Our Mission
    should we choose to accept it

    Is to fill the Section Emergency Coordinator position in the shortest time possible. Since Bob Summers became ill and unable to hold the position, Herb Fiddick assumed the position after the position was open for open over two years. Herb stepped down from the SEC post as of the end of 2013. We need to fill this post as the remaining Emergency Coordinators are unsure as to who they send their reports. There seems to be a discrepancy from the number of opening shown on this site, and the list that is given to the SEC that is significant in number. There is also a problem in the number of EC's reporting regularly when they knew that there was an SEC in position for nearly a year. That number was very low.

    This is the opinion of a single amateur in the state. I would hope that Kansas fills this position soon.

    Amateur Radio Emergency Service, commonly known as A.R.E.S.® is a dedicated core of communicators providing communications in times of major and unforeseen disasters; without pecuniary (financial) compensation. To provide communications services when all OTHER FORMAL MEANS OF COMMUNICATIONs fail.

    There is no substitute for actual practice. Your emergency net should practice regularly--much more often than it operates in a real or simulated emergency. Avoid complacency, the feeling that you will know how to operate when the time comes. You won't, unless you do it frequently, with other operators whose style of operating you get to know.
