"TIP OF THE DAY"


Communicating during an Emergency

Emergency situations require quick, clear, and accessible communications. One critical part of our emergency communications system is the 911 network. You can call 911 from a home or mobile phone; if you have a hearing impairment, you may use the TTY service. In some areas, you can also send a text message to 911. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has developed a guide about text-to-911 communications from landlines using TTY, as well as mobile phones, and how you can expect that to work. Another form of disaster communication, the Emergency Alert System, gives national, state, and local governments the ability to share emergency information with the public via broadcast, cable, and wireless cable systems. All EAS broadcasts and emergency information from broadcast television and radio are required to be accessible by audio and visual means. The FCC has specific requirements for the accessibility of disaster information and what must be provided to be people with disabilities.

This is where you can come to find the latest information on Amateur Radio (also known as "Ham Radio") related activities and events in El Paso, Texas and the surrounding area.

All Ham Radio clubs and organizations in the area are welcome (and encouraged) to provide information to this site and keep it up to date.

And don't forget to support your local clubs!
