ACS-ARES Meeting Set for January 8th at Oxnard EOC

Below is the information about our ACS-ARES meeting for January 08, 2024. It will be held at the City of Oxnard Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at 360 West Second Street, Oxnard.

We will also stream the meeting for those that don’t wish to attend in person. I will post the Zoom info on groups.io the day of the meeting.

The meeting will start promptly at 7:30. You are welcome to arrive at 7:00 for a bit of social time before the meeting. There are no mask, testing,  or vax requirements, but you are welcome to take any precautions that you wish. Yellow shirts are appropriate. Either the county one or ARES shirts. I will have ACS-ARES patches if you want to add them to your clothing or gear. Wearing your ACS ID is suggested.

The meeting is open to all – members, non-members, and the curious – anyone interested in what we do is encouraged to attend. Feel free to pass on this information to others you believe might be interested. This is a chance to put a face to the people you may only know as a voice on the radio. We look forward to hearing about your unique Ham experience. 

We will review progress on our systems, and new information about upcoming events will be discussed. 

              A report on our activities with a review of upcoming and recent events

              A special report on the tsunami threat to Oxnard and Ventura County

              Progress reports on EOC and infrastructure systems.
