Stark County EMA Activation
Terry Russ, N8ATZ -  Emergency Coordinator

(Feb 6, 2016) - - The Stark County EMA was briefly activated last Monday evening when a train derailment occurred at the Brewster Wheeling & Lake Erie Railway station. Four railroad tanker cars derailed and one carrying butane caught fire at about 5:30 PM. By about 6:15 PM the Stark County EMA was activated uncertain as to the extent of the emergency.

ARES was requested to activate the communications center to monitor the county emergency station and establish and an emergency net in case additional support was needed at area hospitals and the Red Cross Center.

About 100 local residents in close proximity to the scene were evacuated and assisted by the Red Cross.

County Emergency Coordinator Terry Russ, N8ATZ was contacted and also responded to the EOC with Assistant EC David Beltz, WD8AYE  who staffed the Comm Center for several hours assisting with communications. Once the on scene fire and Haz-Mat crews had the situation under control at about 8:00 PM, the EMA was deactivated and our Emergency Net was closed. EMA Director Tim Warstler appreciated the quick response from the Stark County ARES who monitored communications during the emergency.

[Courtesy of Stan Broadway, N8BHL]  (Jan 28, 2016) - - Flint, Michigan, is not the only community with water problems due to high lead content. During the week of January 18, some 8100 water customers in Sebring, Ohio, were notified that they, too, had problems with high lead content in their drinking water. On January 22, both Ohio and Mahoning County emergency management agencies began passing out bottled water in Sebring. Mahoning County ARES Emergency Coordinator Wes Boyd, W8IZC, activated ARES to assist.

“Response on the workday was low, but a handful of ARES volunteers were able to respond,” said Ohio Section Emergency Coordinator Stan Broadway, N8BHL.

Boyd said, “EMA and Red Cross were overjoyed that radio operators came to work not needing a radio.”

ARES volunteers joined others in moving and distributing pallets of bottled water, and another call went for weekend duty. ARES members from neighboring counties volunteered. All told, the volunteers moved more than 166 pallets of water in 6 days.

“This is a perfect example of being ready to serve in whatever capacity we can, in order to help our communities. Sometimes it doesn’t involve only operating a radio,” Broadway said.

2015 Year End ARES Report
Terry Russ, N8ATZ -  Emergency Coordinator

  (Jan 18, 2016) - - Ohio State ARES was actively involved during 2015. The year end report recently issued by Ohio Section Emergency Coordinator Stan Broadway, N8BHL reported some impressive totals for the year.

Ohio ARES averaged 1,700 active members across the Ohio Section. Those members contributed over 55,500 hours in training, exercises, participation in various net operations and performing public service. Of these hours, over 2,000 was directly involved in providing emergency communications.

ARES is indeed a viable emergency resource in Ohio and we continue to need volunteers to participate in the many scheduled events and emergency activations that happen here in Ohio. Please volunteer your time when we call !


2016 ARES Calendar of Events
Terry Russ, N8ATZ -  Emergency Coordinator

(Jan 2, 2016) - - The 2016 ARES Calendar of Events has been updated and includes the dates of our weekly ARES nets and the normally scheduled public service events we participate in. The exact dates of many events are not yet known and will be updated when they are decided.


Ohio Emergency ID Program
Stan Broadway, N8BHL -  Ohio Section EC

  (Jan 2, 2016) - -  I have exciting news to start 2016!  AS you may remember, Ohio ARES has been working unsuccessfully to get some type of statewide accredited credentialing system in place. It seems everyone thought it a good idea, but no one agency wanted to be the responsible party for maintaining a database.   Now, things have changed! 

The Ohio Department of Public Safety has launched a new program that will generate temporary ID’s (visible on your cellphone!) which ~should~ allow you to gain access to an emergency or disaster scene.  The credentials, coupled with a quick records-check the type any police cruiser can do, should allow access. Now, the reality is that local law enforcement will have the ultimate say in whether you’re accepted, but this should go a long way for such programs as ARESMAT, where neighboring or ‘outside’ assistance is required by local ARES groups.  These ID’s can also be used for ‘level three’ snow emergencies or other situations.  

Most of the ID’s will carry a seven-day period, and are good for only the specific emergency situation involved. A second layer ID is good for multiple emergencies over a six-month period.  

Ohio ARES is one of the OP3 partners, Section Manager Scott Yonally N8SY and myself are registered with the program.  We will get more information on the practical application of this program as it is available.  

Best wishes for 2016!

-Stan


ARES Going into 2016
Stan Broadway, N8BHL - Section Emergency Coordinator

  (Nov 26, 2015) - - ARES has been evolving to meet the needs of our served agencies. Agencies and the volunteers are better organized than ever, and are required to be better trained in technology, tactics, and organization. Volunteer organizations must be self-sufficient rather than rely on their served agencies to provide them support. The Ohio Section is working to ensure that ARES remains a viable and vital partner in emergency communications to our served agencies and a partner in managing public events in our communities. In 2016, you will see several important changes throughout the Ohio Section.

1.     More rigorous training. Building and maintaining essential skills and qualifications is a priority. These need to cover radio technology and tactics, organization, and relevant regulatory concerns. We’ll continue putting these to work in the kind of multiagency exercises that many ARES groups throughout the Ohio Section have been supporting in recent years, showing the agencies just how we can support them.

2.     Greater capability. Our system of providing support to local ECs through Districts and with ARESMAT will help to ensure our agencies that should the time come, trained and capable operators will be available. The OARS database helps us to identify and to organize assets needed to respond. Team W8SGT keeps the State EOC on our airwaves. Exercises in using NVIS, mesh, fldigi , and other technologies have proved successful, giving us more options than ever to move voice, text, images, and video all without others’ infrastructure.

3.     Greater service to our agencies. As our skills and capabilities increase, our focus is still on making ARES a working partner with our agencies. We have the capability to become a ‘technical advisor’ to our agencies. We should always display the attitude that we’re there to help- whether that be via ham radio, our first priority, or in any other was that we can. With our own support systems, field operations capabilities and infrastructure such as repeaters we can ensure our served agencies and public events coordinators that we have the resources to support them.

The Ohio Section leadership is excited about 2016, and are looking forward to working with all Ohio Section ARES volunteers to realize the vision of a fully-capable Amateur Radio Emergency Service throughout Ohio. My great thanks and appreciation to all of you for your enthusiasm and dedication!


Stark ARES Display
Terry Russ, N8ATZ - Emergency Coordinator

    (Nov 1, 2015) -- Stark ARES hosted an information table at the October 25th Massillon Hamfest. The table was staffed by ARES Net Manager Mike Lackney - KB8MIB and Assistant Net Manager Mike Palmer - KD8ENV.

Our display included a PowerPoint presentation covering basic ARES & Skywarn operations, a display of several versions of Emergency Response or (Go-Boxes) and informational literature. New this year was literature provided by the Stark County EMA Office.

Many visitors stopped by with questions and comments covering our ARES & Skywarn programs here in Stark County. My thanks to both Mike's for staffing the booth during the hamfest !

Severe Weather Report
Terry Russ, N8ATZ - Stark Co EC

 (Jun 19, 2015) - - Situation update to the severe weather pattern that came through Stark County last Thursday.

Our initial evaluation of the area shows most of the damage occurred in the Uniontown and Hartville areas.  According to the NWS the winds in our area reached 80 mph.  The wind damage path is several miles wide with a smaller intense path approximately 300 ft wide.  This path was located in the area of the Uniontown Fire Department to the intersection of Smith-Kramer, Middle Branch and Market Avenue following a path to State Route 44 in Marlboro Township. 

The NWS will be out later today to evaluate the pattern of damage to the area.  There is a possibility that this smaller intense path of damage is consistent with tornado activity.  The NWS suggests at this time without further evaluation that it is possible to have had a small tornado embedded within the larger storm. 

All the resource needs in the damaged areas were met locally with the Red Cross providing canteen services to local responders until 3:30 am.  One person was provided shelter by the Red Cross due to specific medical needs. 

The NWS has determined that Stark County had an EF-1 tornado estimated to be 100 yards wide at 105 mph.  The tornado touched down in Uniontown and traveled East-SE along an intermittent path for approximately 9 miles.  Most of the damage was to trees being uprooted or snapped half way up.  A newly constructed dairy barn in Marlboro Township in the area of Rt 44 and Peters Church road had significant roof damage.  Minor roof and siding damage to homes was observed along the path. 

Throughout the event Stark County Skywarn was activated and maintained close communication with the Stark County EMA office in case our assistance was requested.


ARES Activation
Terry Russ, N8ATZ - Stark Co EC

 (Jan 19, 2015) - - Stark County ARES was activated the evening of January 13th when a telephone outage caused by an equipment failure in a Summit County AT&T switching station caused multiple equipment failures throughout the area. Here in Stark County local emergency service phone line failure resulted in an emergency declaration and the Stark County EMA office was activated.

EMA Director Tim Warstler requested ARES activation to provide communications and logistics support to his office. ARES member David Beltz was first to respond to the office at 9:00 PM only to find that our equipment had been temporarily removed as building renovation was in process.  Dave contacted EC Terry Russ to respond as well. Our portable equipment kit was brought to the EOC to establish communications. Antennas had also been removed and thanks to support from local radio station WHBC and their remote truck, station engineer Dale Lamm, NX8J, we were able to setup a temporary antenna. This completed we established a net on our ARES Repeater.

During net operations, we made contact with the multiple EMA offices affected by the phone outage. We were also in contact with the Ohio EMA office in Columbus. During the next four hours we helped maintain communications links with multiple offices and public safety forces as well as staff the MARCS Statewide Radio System. The Massillon ARC offered the use of their Communications Trailer in case support equipment was needed.

Stark County Sheriff George Maier and EMA Director Tim Warstler were thankful for area amateurs quick response to this short communications emergency. Full phone service was restored and by approximately 1:30 AM we closed down the emergency net and operations from the EOC.

"Go-Box" Version 2.0
Terry Russ, N8ATZ - Stark Co EC

 (Dec 27, 2014) - - While I was very satisfied with my latest Equipment or Go-Box based on the Gator 8U Rack Mount Case, it did have several limitations. On my latest design, I tried to correct these limitations and come up with a more useful Field Box.  The full report including several pictures is posted on the Projects Page.  Have a look at it and let me know what you think.


ARES Readiness Update
Terry Russ, N8ATZ - Stark Co EC

  (Oct 18, 2014) - - Massillon City officials have initiated an incident command system (ICS) as a precautionary measure in the event of a local emergency relating to Ebola. ICS is a military-style command structure used to coordinate response to emergencies and has been part of the Stark County ARES training for many years.

Massillon City Health Commissioner Terri Argent noted that the agency is ramping up and maintaining communications daily with city safety forces in order to be able to respond quickly if an emergency occurs.

City Safety-Service Director Al Hennon, Fire Chief Tom Burgasser and Argent meet daily to discuss the status of this issue and how it might relate to the city. The Canton City Health Department has also implemented a similar response system in the event of an emergency.

Stark County ARES maintains communications with our County EMA office and would be ready if called upon to provide support communications to area hospitals, health departments and the EOC if needed.


 

The Equipment Box Primer
Terry Russ, N8ATZ -  Emergency Coordinator

 

 (Feb 2, 2014) - - An equipment or "Go-Box" is quickly becoming an essential part of every radio amateur involved in public service communications. More and more, amateurs are being tasked to quick deploy to everything from local public service drills to disaster scenes.

 

Equipment Boxes have been showcased at several Ohio Section ARES meetings and I have posted several of my designs on this website the past year. I have received a few emails asking for more information on the topic and have added some additional information on the Projects Page of this website. Additional pictures of several of my own designs are included as well as a link to many shown during the past Ohio Section ARES meetings.

 

If any of you have built your own versions we would be happy to include them on the page. Send me a short recap of your design with pictures if you have them and I will post them.

 

A portable Go-Box can be a great project and very useful when you need additional capability during an ARES event.

ARRL Signs New Memorandum of Understanding with American Rad Cross
Courtesy of the ARRL

(Feb 4, 2016) - -  The ARRL and the American Red Cross have signed a new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). The document, signed in January, succeeds one agreed to in 2010; it will remain in place for the next 5 years. The MoU spells out how League Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) volunteers will interface with the Red Cross in the event that ARES teams are asked by the Red Cross to assist in a disaster or emergency response.

“Whenever there is a disaster requiring the use of Amateur Radio communications resources and/or facilities, the local Red Cross region or chapter may request the assistance of the local ARES organization responsible for the jurisdiction of the scene of the disaster,” the MoU provides. Such assistance would include mobilization of ARES personnel in accordance with a prearranged plan, and the establishment of communication as necessary during a disaster or emergency. “Both ARRL volunteers and American Red Cross workers will work cooperatively at the scene of a disaster and in the disaster recovery, within the scope of their respective roles and duties” within the scope of the MoU, the agreement says.

Hams Turn Out to Help as Massive Snowfall Stuns Several States
Courtesy of the ARRL

(Jan 26, 2016) - - Amateur Radio volunteers were at the ready as a storm of historic proportions over the January 23-24 weekend dropped up to 3-1/2 feet of snow, some of it on states not used to seeing much snow at all. Some communities remained paralyzed Monday morning, as they continue to dig out. Utility line icing caused power outages in some states, and flooding occurred along coastal areas. While the storm bypassed Northern New England, it brought major East Coast cities to their knees, and some 30 deaths have been blamed on the severe weather. In the New York City area, Hudson Division Director Mike Lisenco, N2YBB, said he tried to keep up with the rapid and heavy snowfall accumulation as he anticipated reports from Section Managers (SMs) and Emergency Coordinators (ECs).

“I shoveled snow three times already today,” he said late Saturday. “There’s still another foot of snow out there. The city is completely shut down. No cars are allowed to be on the road at all! I’ve never seen that happen in my 62 years.” A record 26 inches of snow fell in New York City’s Central Park. Lisenco said 31 inches fell in Brooklyn.

Boston Marathon Seeks Amateur Radio Volunteers
Courtesy of the ARRL

(Dec 28, 2015) - -  Preparations are under way for the 120th running of the Boston Athletic Association’s Boston Marathon, which takes place on Patriots’ Day, April 18, 2016. Nearly 300 trained Amateur Radio volunteers staff the event each spring, providing vital communication services over the entire 26 mile course. Volunteers are recruited, selected, and managed by the BAA’s Communications Committee, now in its second year.

“A major initiative of the Committee this year is to bolster the technology we use on Marathon Monday,” said Communications Committee member Matthew Forman, K6MCF. “To do so, we’re forming a Technical Infrastructure Subcommittee (TIS) and seeking amateurs who can offer current skills in analog and/or digital modes (UHF/VHF), repeaters, and infrastructure. We’d like to have the TIS consist of one technically seasoned member from Amateur Radio clubs in Massachusetts, Southern New Hampshire, and the northern parts of Connecticut and Rhode Island.”

Committee member Mark Richards, K1MGY, will assist in representing the TIS to clubs and other interests. Contact Richards for more information.
