Winter Field Day

January 29/30, 2022

 

We Will not have a group gathering for WFD. Use your call and participate. See rules on WFD web site.

Saturday January 29th beginning at 14:00pm EST is Winter Field Day.    

Watch this web site and GARS groups.io for additional details. 


Disasters are unpredictable by nature and can strike when you least expect them. WFDA’s goal is to help enhance your skills and ready you for all environmental conditions found in the US and Canada during the spring, summer, fall, and winter.

Preparedness is the key to a professional and timely response during any event and this is what local and state authorities are expecting when they reach out to the emergency service groups that offer their services.

If you are serious about emergency communications as we are; we welcome you to join us for our yearly event. We are sure that you will find this event a pleasant change and challenge to that of a normal summer time field day.

We will also monitor the GARS 147.075 repeater.

GWINNETT ARES MEMBERS:  This will be a Gwinnett ARES qualifying deployable event.
