Pennsylvania Red Cross invites all Pennsylvania amateur radio operators to join in celebrating the opening of the Red Cross Emcomm Stations (RCES). These stations are located in Red Cross facilities in each of the 10 Pennsylvania Red Cross Disaster Response Areas (DRA). The Red Cross Emcomm Stations are located in existing Red Cross facilities Most are “compact” stations.

Please join the Red Cross on the air on March 16. The RCES will be activated from 1:00 to 4:00 PM local time. All Pennsylvania hams are invited to participate. Listen for the RCES lead to announce the exercise. Check in with your call sign, name, county and state if you are an ARES® or Red Cross volunteer. ARES® Emergency Coordinators are invited to visit the stations during the exercise. Contact the station lead (detailed in the chart below) to make arrangements. The stations are compact so visitors will be limited to one or two.
