An Introduction to Fire Department Communications

The program for the October meeting will be an introduction to modern fire department communications including MABAS, Digital Radios, Dispatching and other technologies that are currently used in the communities where we live.  The program will be given by Lee Jones, KB9SUY, a professional fire dispatcher, communications specialist and of course, longtime friend to Tri-Town.

October is National Fire Prevention Month so this program is very appropriate for this month.

The meeting will be held on Friday, October 17th at the Hazel Crest Village Hall located at 170th and Holmes.  Business meeting at 8:00 and the program will follow.  Friends and guests are always welcome.
