Doug N7KNK is signing up ACS members for net control duties through May 1. Check the Calendar page, and mouse-over or click the “North County” or “South County” entries to see who is scheduled for that net. It’s good experience, not as hard as it looks, and it’s a friendly crowd. Don’t be shy!
The Documents page has an updated Roster, plus:
- ACS Administrative Plan
- ACS Volunteer Application
- Roster in Excel format, designed for data collection and transmission
Please mark the January 10th meeting on your calendar and come say hi.
We’ll have new net preambles and rosters, and will be signing up folks for
operating net control so we can all get some practice running the nets.

Citizens and Businesses Can Sign Up to Receive Critical Alerts During Emergencies
(11.4.11- Lincoln County) Lincoln County has begun using Everbridge Aware™ “Citizen Aware”, an emergency notification system that can communicate with thousands of businesses and residents in minutes during an emergency.
Lincoln County Emergency Services and our 911 dispatch centers can now alert residents county-wide about severe weather, tsunami inundation area evacuations, fires, floods, toxic environmental issues and other emergencies using the notification system. Messages can now be sent to residents on any communication path desired – cell phone, home phone, email, text messaging, fax, pager, PDA and more – ensuring that residents receive life-saving emergency information and important public service announcements in minutes.
Citizens who previously signed up for the former “Reverse 9-1-1” notification will need to sign up again with Everbridge because their information will not transfer to the new system. This new system will allow citizens to provide and manage their contact information and preferences.
In addition, the County may begin using the Everbridge system to notify residents about other important activities, such as road closures and water utility maintenance. More details will be forthcoming. Please join us by signing up and encouraging family, friends and businesses to do the same.
To sign up for emergency alerts, please visit the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Services Web Site www.lincolncountysheriff.net/emergency and look for the “Citizen Alert” image. Residents who do not have a come computer or internet access should contact their local library for free use of their computers to log on to the internet.
