activated for possible flooding
Good Evening all can I express
my thanks to all who stepped up to meet this request, I
have received a lot of positive feedback from the user
services thanking us for attending and providing
emergency comms to cover this potentially serious
We have done RAYNET proud and
helped immensely to spread our capabilities to cover any
situation if called upon.
Once again Thankyou
Mark Callow 2E0RMT
Chairman / County Controller
I am pleased to report that
flooding and evacuation incident at Tendring has now
officially closed and Essex RAYNET has been stood down.
My thanks to those members who
responded to the initial call for assistance on Thursday
morning and the subsequent call when we were told the
incident was going to be protracted.
All the members who gave time
to assist are to be particularly praised – some who were
continuously on duty for in excess of 40 hours! It was
very useful to receive a ‘not available’ message from
some members. When a Base Officer is collecting
members’ availability, it helps to know which members
can be discounted. This can save time and allow efforts
to be concentrated on liaising with the Incident Officer
and arranging ETAs and giving directions to those who
are able to help.
No doubt we will hear more
details from the Management Committee.
