Folks…once again time to get ready for the 2018 marathon. It will be held Sunday, October 7th.
Over the years, the ham team has been able to demonstrate just how effective we can be as a communications team for the event’s volunteer medical staff. As a result, our role has grown. We could easily use 150 volunteers. We have expanded our support in the final mile, Grant Park and increased staffing in several event medical facilities. We need you! Please feel free to forward this note and the registration link to your colleagues.
This is a great place to develop your public service communication skills. There is a great deal you can do now to prepare. We encourage everyone to take the ICS (Incident Command Structures) courses, especially ICS 100, 200, 700 and 800. These are available for free through FEMA. Even if you have had no experience, we will post you with some other who had had event experience. You need to still do the reading, watch the videos and be willing to serve the cause.
As in past years, there will be a two- part registration process. Part One is here. Follow the link below to register into our system. (By the way, this is not the most mobile friendly app…best to do this on a desktop computer.)
Part 2. Later, we will ask you to complete your registration in the Bank’s system.
We want to thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you in the Fall. Jerry and I are both available for presentations to club meetings, as we encourage clubs to bring their own teams (although we cannot guarantee that you will be assigned to that team.
Registration will close at the end of August…but don’t put things off!! Register today.
