Public Invited to Emergency Communications Demonstration, June 25-26

Press Release

Released by: Captain Dyon Harper

Release Date: 06-20-2022

Public Invited to Emergency Communications Demonstration, June 25-26

Raytown, MO – The Raytown CERT Radio Team invites the public to an amateur radio emergency communications demonstration at 10000 E 59th Street, Raytown, behind Raytown City Hall, on June 25th & 26th. The free event will begin on Saturday, June 25th at 1:00 pm and conclude on Sunday, June 26th at 1:00 pm. The Raytown CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) Radio Team invites the public to come and see ham radio’s capabilities and learn how to get their own FCC radio license before the next disaster. To learn more about Amateur Radio, come and visit with the team, they will get you “on the air.” All ages are welcome.

This annual event, called “Field Day,” is the climax of the week-long “Amateur Radio Week” sponsored by the ARRL, American Radio Relay League, the national association for Amateur Radio. Using only emergency power supplies, ham operators will construct emergency stations in parks, shopping malls grounds, schools, and even backyards around the country. Their slogan, “When All Else Fails, Ham Radio Works,” is more than just words to the hams as they prove they can send messages in many forms without the use of the phone systems, Internet, or any other infrastructure that can be compromised in a crisis. More than 35,000 amateur radio operators across the country participated in last year’s event.

On the weekend of June 25 & 26, the public will have a chance to meet and talk with ham radio operators from the Raytown CERT Amateur Radio team. They can see for themselves what Amateur Radio Service is all about as hams across the United States will be holding public demonstrations of emergency communications abilities. While visiting, the public is encouraged to talk with CERT Team members about the CERT program, and how they may be able to help their community when the need arises.

Despite the availability of the internet, cell phones, email, and modern communications, entire regions find themselves “in the dark” every year. Tornadoes, fire, storms, ice, and even the occasional cutting of fiber optic cables leave people without a means of communication. In those cases, the one consistent service that has never failed has been Amateur Radio. These radio operators, often called “hams” provide backup communications for everything from the American Red Cross to FEMA and even the International Space Station. Your town’s “hams” will join thousands of other Amateur Radio operators demonstrating their emergency capabilities over the weekend of June 25 & 26.

Over the past year, ham radio operators have provided critical communications during unexpected emergencies in towns across America including the California wildfires, winter storms, tornadoes, hurricanes, and other events. When trouble brews, Amateur Radio operators are often the first to provide rescuers with critical information and communications.

“The fastest way to turn a crisis into a total disaster is to lose communications,” said Allen Pitts

of ARRL. “From earthquakes, tsunamis, and tornadoes, ham radio provides the most reliable communications networks in the first critical hours of the events. Because ham radios are not dependent on the Internet, cell towers, or other infrastructure, they work when nothing else is available.”
