SET 2015 - SEC Bulletin #3

This is a drill.  This is a drill.  This is a drill.

Hurricane Freddy, now a strong Category 2 storm, is rapidly approaching Connecticut.

It is forecast to arrive in our area during the evening hours today, Friday, the 13th of November.

NWS continues to expect significant tornadic activity in the Northeast from this hurricane.

I am hereby raising the CT ARES Activation Status to Level 2 Standby effective immediately.

If the track of the storm continues as currently forecast, I will be raising the CT ARES Activation Status to Level 3 Deploy later today.

Please maintain good situational awareness as the storm develops by watching/listening to your preferred weather forecast sources.

Please be prepared to assist our Served Agencies if requested by ensuring your radio batteries are charged, vehicles and generators are fueled, etc.

The safety of you and your family should be your highest priority!  Now is the time to make preparations to keep your family safe should you be asked to deploy.

This is a drill. This is a drill. This is a drill.
