FEMA Training in Northern Michigan
Posted: 9/19/2007

When most modern forms of communication fail, there's normally one that doesn't... it's called the amateur radio.
On Wednesday, a northern Michigan amateur radio group hosted FEMA training at the Elmira Township Hall in Otsego County.

The training taught people the national system of communicating on Amateur radios during emergencies.
Anyone could attend the training but most were emergency responders that might need to use the radio if all else fails.

 9&10's Ryan Raiche has more on what they learned.

(The next training class is October 17th, 2007)
