    SC4ARES is officially being called out for the anticipated power outage, starting tomorrow at noon. I have the following schedule of 2 operators on 6-hour shifts for 24 hours:

    W 12-6pm Jeneen, Laurie, Eva (observing/scribing)
    W 6-midnight Mary, Neil
    Th midnight-6am Angelo, David (DOV)
    Th 6-noon Linda, Craig

    The power outage could be extended, and we will be without internet. So please have your radios on and your go kits ready to deploy if needed, and be prepared to staff the DOC for a 6-hour shift on Thursday and beyond if needed. I will start a net at 8 am tomorrow morning to see who is available.


    I’m available, and will be monitoring on the radio.

    Jeneen, W6NCS

    The ICS-205 (comm plan) for the call out has been uploaded to the library:

    Nothing unusual about it: we’ll be on the 2m repeater for net control, with CTL95 as the backup.


    On the Tuesday night County Sheriff’s net, they announced that they would be monitoring the OES repeaters, including CTL93 and CTL95. They did not mention any specific plans to open a net.

    All I have to add is at this morning’s San Mateo Firesafe Council the PG&E rep said that they and OES will be doing a status call-in about every 3 hours. At that point OES is supposed to relay the status to stake-holders & constituents. PG&E said the restoration process is Trunk-Branch-Leaf so folks at the ends of lines will be the last to be restored.

    I’m in Belmont, thinking it’s not appropriate to ‘add to the worry-load’ by trucking over to La Honda for a shift. ( I don’t want to be that guy. ) Current plans are that Friday I will be coming through, and can bring things to the DOC if needed. I have a meeting Saturday morning in Pescadero.

    I just got a text from OES saying the outage will be 8pm tonight to noon tomorrow
