Emergency Preparedness in Calabasas (EPIC-FSC), a local non-profit, will soon be receiving a grant from the Amateur Radio Digital Communications foundation (ARDC) to build and deploy amateur radio equipment to send and receive email messages without a direct connection to the Internet. Amateur radio operators will be able to communicate by relaying messages outside of the affected area to other stations that still have an Internet connection.
Using the Zonehaven AWARE platform, first responders and residents will refer to the same set of Zone maps used for planning and conducting evacuations,” the city of Calabasas said in a news release. “Beginning with the Santa Monica Mountain region, residents can now see their ‘Zone’ and have access to information about emergency services in their zone, see real-time zone status updates, shelter options, and more.”
