To take part in the WCARES SET Exercise 2022 use the sign-up form found here.
The WCARES SET is a countywide emergency communications exercise intended to test our ability to provide communications for our primary served agency, the Williamson County Emergency Management Agency (WCEMA), as well as the National Weather Service (NWS).
The date for the 2022 SET Exercise is Saturday, October 15, 2022 and this exercise will take the place of the October WCARES Monthly Meeting.
The exercise will begin at 0800 (8 AM) CST and end at 1215 (12:15 PM) CST.
There will be an “after-action” review (“hotwash”) immediately following the exercise.
The ARRL Simulated Emergency Test is a nationwide exercise in emergency communications, administered by ARRL Field Organization Leaders including Emergency Coordinators, District Emergency Coordinators, Section Emergency Coordinators and Net Managers. Many other Section Leaders like the Section Manager and the Section Traffic Manager may have a hand in planning the exercises and/or reviewing the results. Amateur Radio Emergency Service ® (ARES®), National Traffic System (NTS), Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES) and other public service-oriented groups can be involved. The SET weekend gives communicators the opportunity to focus on the emergency-communications capability within your community while interacting with NTS nets.
