BLANCHARD FIRE EVAC PLANNING OF PETS AND LIVESTOCK
at OUR BLANCHARD GRANGE MEETING Monday Sept 9, 7PM
Russ Spriggs, of Bonner County's Community Emergency Response Team, has invited Bob Howard, Bonner County's Director of Emergency Management, to the BLANCHARD Grange Meeting. Bob will be working with CERT, INWPREP, Blanchard Grange members and ALL Neighbors in our section of the county to formulate a local communications plan as well as develop resources for transporting, evacuating and housing pets and livestock in an emergency. We will be part of a regional network cooperating in this planning. Your participation is critical!
To be effective, we must expand our current FRS, GMRS, MURS, CB and 2-Meter Comms Nets: Every Mon / Wed / Fri, tune to FRS CH3 at 0830; listen and participate; no license required. Then at 0845, listen in at 146.420; participate if licensed! (Buy your BaoFeng UV-5Rs NOW! See: www.HooDooCH3.com)
