---------------------------------------------------

Last year with the SET, we trained for Cyber Security awareness with how to prepare and respond when community critical infrastructure is involved. To summarize:

  • Always go to your Standard Operating Procedures, especially if the source or reason is unknown for an interruption in your community. This allows a standard and predictable approach to All Hazards.

  • Keep your information flow accurate and accountable (sourced first hand ground truth only) so that anyone listening for situational awareness does not have to sort out the rumors and speculation.

  • Keep awareness of unusual situations and report them accurately to your community leaders.

  • We need to add in – keep identifying information off the air; locations, personal identification, and some activities, to keep your community safe.

Remember, Amateur Radio is never in charge of the incident. We are support for situational awareness and message traffic. With the entire community listening, we have an exceptional responsibility to be professional communicators.
