Hello, Section Managers, Section Emergency Coordinators, and Public Information Coordinators in the ARRL Connecticut, Eastern Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, and Vermont Sections.
ARRL Headquarters is coordinating closely with our partners in hurricane response for any anticipated activation of amateur radio operators surrounding Hurricane Lee.
It is important for ARRL to be able to share with the larger amateur radio community and the general public what hams are doing to serve in the face of this storm.
Please include firstname.lastname@example.org in your internal and external communications about the event. It will help us keep track of what is going on out in the individual sections and to help tell that story, as appropriate.
Share with us news of preparation and activities that support readiness for activation, and especially word of actual activations.
We strongly encourage you to send any photos or video clips that you’re able to share from your preparation or activation.
Please only share visual assets that you have permission for ARRL to publish.
Thank you for the work you do to advance ARRL and amateur radio. Please stay safe if the storm does impact your area. ARRL HQ staff is here to assist, should you have any needs.
PICs, I can generate media contact lists for your areas, if you need.
Sierra Harrop, W5DX
Public Relations and Outreach Manager
