BayComm emergency preparedness radio club up and running

I am happy to report that BayComm, a radio group started this year, is now active. We are still looking for additional members, however, to make it truly valuable to the community. The concept is to have a state-of-the-art, battery-operated CB radio on hand when the power goes out and other forms of communication go down. This will provide a link (or “lifeline”) to family members, and others in the community.

No one likes to think about what life would be like if this were to occur, and extend for a month or more, but the reality could very well happen. Being prepared, mentally and physically, is what could save your life. This group is for the benefit of all residents of Bay and the Westshore suburbs, and it requires little or no experience to become an active member.

As a law enforcement officer for the city of Bay Village, I will train members in certain techniques that will be beneficial to survival in a time of disaster. It will also be an opportunity to have a sounding-board of knowledge, being that members come from all walks of life, with varying skill sets. To be considered as a member, email I will send you an application and talk with you further.
