Our 2022 Turkey Trot volunteers who gave their time on Thanksgiving morning to provide potential emergency communications for the event. We set up our EmComm trailer and had 14 spots along the course that our members set up at to monitor the participants in case a situation would happen. With the members who were present we had a visual on the entire course. This was our 2nd year to provide this service by SPARK for the Center for Human Services. Our volunteers received high praise by the Center’s organizers for helping out with their annual event. Fantastic turnout and once again our members showed that we have a great club and we are excited to be a vital part of a great event and look forward to being a permanent part of this event for years to come.
Excellent video and again thanks to everyone who made Sparkfest 2022 a event to remember
In effect until 9am 11-15-22. Possible 1-2 inches of snow overnight.

This Saturday October 29th we will be conducting our annual SET EXERCISE. The purpose of this exercise is to test our equipment and readiness for a actual emergency situation. Members who participate will be asked to do various tasks during the exercise. Our Emergency Communications Trailer will be setting up at a undisclosed location and will be the control station during the event.
