Saturday was a busy morning as Lyle and Linc completed the electrical work on Comm II.  All wiring was completed and there are now three electrical boxes installed AND we only cross wired things once!  No blown fuses, no singed fingers – what a great morning.  Thanks to Lyle and Linc for their hard work.  We’re almost done!

Team members will get a chance to practice using all the systems in Comm II at Monday’s meeting.  Let’s get you checked out on these radios!

Lewis County 911 Center Tour

2014-11-03 19.57.24 - CopyDuring a very rainy evening, the Centralia ARES team toured our local 911 Dispatch Center.  At the time of our visit, the communications techs were working only three computer consoles – Centralia/Chehalis police departments, Lewis County Sheriffs office/ various small town police departments and the fire/medical teams.  It was a quiet evening so we were able to ask questions and enjoyed a nice tour which also included the backroom electronics as well as the amateur radio system. After the tour, the team took time to enjoy a”training debrief” at the local Dairy Queen.
