‘Amateur Radio on the Front Page’

"Amateur Radio on the Front Page"

The Teller County Sheriff (The County Seat is Cripple Creek, Colorado) has put a link to Amateur Radio on the front page of its web site. It is a link called 'Getting on the Air with Amateur Radio'.

It is right next to the County's evacuation plan called: "Ready, Set, Go." That is a program that the International Association of Fire Chiefs ( has developed for wildfire evacuation education.

The adjoining county, El Paso County, Colorado Springs, CO, also uses that model.

Smaller communities are using MURS (Multi-Use Radio Service) for local citizens to get information. See the Crystal Park Volunteer Fire Department's plan at:

Connecting with your County's Emergency Management Manager could allow you to get similar recognition for your club.
