Greetings, MARC Members and Friends of MARC,
If you get this twice, my apologies... you are probably on both marc-announce and marc-members.
This year, MARC will be participating in the Great Utah Shakeout event. This is a large scale simulation of a high intensity earthquake event affecting Utah. More details are available on the Shakeout web page here: https://www.shakeout.org/utah/index.html
The shakeout this year will be taking place on 21 April 2022. Because of the shakeout, we will NOT be having a club meeting on the 21st this month. Our first meeting in May will be a discussion about the results of the shakeout and what we, as a club, can and should be doing in the event of an actual earthquake or other natural disaster.
If you are available to participate in the shakeout, please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/CxRZbBQAjLtSk5Kx5
We will use the information from the form to advise the Fire Department of our availability to assist during the event. At this point, it is not clear what level of assistance they will require, but we'll figure that out as the event gets closer. At a minimum, participants should be ready to communicate on the radio following the MARC eComms protocol (see https://www.murrayarc.org/radio-resources/ecomms-protocol/ for details). If possible, you may be asked to relocate to a mustering area (either the EOC, a local hospital or landmark, or a S.A.F.E. Neighborhood location... for more on the S.A.F.E. Neighborhood program, see https://www.murrayarc.org/2020/10/16/training-class-8-october-2020-safe-neighborhoods/ or https://www.safeutah.org/).
Please fill out the form at your earliest convenience and review the other information listed.
Thank you for your support!
