Upcoming Amateur Radio Class

Filed in EM News Comments Off on Upcoming Amateur Radio Class

Cowley County Emergency Management, in cooperation with the Cowley County Amateur Radio Club, will once again be offering an entry-level Amateur Radio class. This class will teach the information needed to obtain your first Amateur Radio license.

Amateur Radio is both a hobby as well as an emergency communications resource. Operators are often able to still communicate when other means fail, and have been valuable assets during many recent large-scale disasters.

The class will be held over the course of five weeks on Thursday nights starting March 1st, and ending on March 29th. Classes will run from 6pm until 9pm, and will be located at the Cowley County Emergency Operations Center, 321 E. 10th Avenue in Winfield.

The cost to take the class is $40, and this cost will include a textbook and the final license examination fee. Payment is due at the first class session.

Class size is limited and pre-registration is required. To register, please use the link below. For additional information, contact the Cowley County Emergency Management office by phone at (620) 221-0470, or by email at jstradal@cowleycounty.org.

Cowley County Emergency Management, in coordination with their volunteer groups (Emergency Auxiliary, CERT, CART and MRC), have created an emergency preparedness video. The song is a familiar tune from The 12 Days of Christmas, but delightfully titled, “The 12 Days of Preparedness”.

Thanks to the many individuals and agencies that volunteered their time, locations, knowledge and experience.
