SET 2015 - SEC Bulletin #4

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

Hurricane Freddy, now a strong Category 1 storm, is forecast to make landfall in Connecticut about midnight tonight, 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 3 Deploy effective immediately.

Please maintain good situational awareness 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.

Note: You should NOT deploy unless directed to do so by your ARES District Emergency Coordinator (DEC) or other appropriate authority.

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

Thanx & 73, Wayne Gronlund N1CLV
