At the request of Richard King, Regional Director of Disaster and Emergency Services for the Finger Lakes Region, the Red Cross asks that Monroe County ARES group prepare for possible activation.

Should MC ARES be activated, please monitor local ARES repeaters for additional instructions. (146.61 – primary, 146.88 – secondary). Activation will likely entail local communications between Red cross Shelters and the Red Cross HQ at prince Street.

Activation will be announced via Hyper-reach telephone notification, email, www.monroecountyemcomm.org the MCARES usergroup and local ARES/RACES repeaters.
