Henry County Emergency Management Agency along with the Henry County Fire Department will be hosting 2 (two) Community Emergency Response Team training classes starting in September at the Henry County Emergency Operations Center located at: 526 Industrial Blvd McDonough, GA 30253 .

 CERT is a positive and realistic approach to emergency and disaster situations where citizens will be initially on their own and their actions can make a difference. Through training, citizens can:

·       manage utilities and put out small fires;

·        treat the three killers by opening airways, controlling bleeding, and treating for shock;

·        provide basic medical aid;

·       search for and rescue victims safely;

·       organize themselves and spontaneous volunteers to be effective during an emergency.

The CERT training is a 20 hour course FREE of charge to anyone:

  • 18 or over
  • Live or work in Henry County
  • Able to pass a Criminal History background check

Space is limited so sign up today!  (Please indicate which class you would like to attend)

Atlanta ARES

by on Jul.22, 2014, under Club Information

On our State ARES Conference call tonight, I was able to ensure we had changed the name of the previous “South Fulton ARES” to now the new name of “Atlanta ARES” (see attached from GA ARES DEC/EC List), with Ken Reid, KG4USN as the new EC. Thank you Dave Stewart for changing the name on the GA ARES DEC/EC list.
I am pleased that with a new EC and subsequent new naming for the Atlanta ARES, this group will take off and grow. I also had the opportunity to meet Ken at the Atlanta/Kennehoochee Hamfest recently and discovered Ken is already acquainted with the Atlanta/Fulton County EMA Director, Mr. Matt Kallmyer.
I am also awaiting the official ARRL notification of the change of EC for North Fulton ARES to Mike Birmingham K4LJG, as Tom Koch is stepping down after 8 very succesful years serving as EC (Thank you again Tom). 
Thanks folks for your dedication and service and talk to you on Field Day! 73’s
