EC Blog updated!

Hello, all!

KEØLMY here!

I’ve updated the EC Blog with the two articles I wrote this month. The first is my editorial on my CPR training and the second is on my experiences with CERT training.

I’d like to congratulate Kelly Stanfield (WØYQG) for completing CERT training and gaining a communications role with the BC MO CERT! This operator continues to take on new challenges and it seems everything for which she strives, she achieves! Great job, Kelly!

Thank you to everyone who continues to check in on our weekly nets on Sunday night at 7 PM CST and to everyone who continues to attend our meetings on the second Saturday of the month! We appreciate your time and effort!
