Welcome to our web site!

We are very excited to be offering Club Days on the first and third Saturday of each month from 10am until 1pm at Fire Station 1 in downtown Culver City.  This is an excellent way to learn and become proficient on the station equipment and many other things that have to do with CCARES like programing radios.  If you have not yet been to our Radio Room, the “talk-in” procedure is to use our repeater, K6CCR-R, on 445.6, -5MHz offset, CTCSS code 131.8. If you do not have a radio, please call the EOC Radio Room at (310) 253-6848 for access instructions.  We hope to see you at one soon!

You may or may not have heard, but next Wednesday, September 13, 2017, from 7pm to 9pm, the CERT General Meeting will be held in the Veterans Center, 4117 Overland Ave, Culver City, CA 90230.  This will be a special meeting.  We are going to celebrate CERT’s 20th birthday.  We will have food, refreshments, dessert, and a special gift for all attendees.  This meeting is in lieu of a picnic this year which was going to conflict with the City’s 100th birthday celebration.

So that we may order the correct amount of food, please RSVP to Dr. Mike Landau.  His email address is Mdlandaumd@gmail.com

Even if you are not a member of CERT you are welcome to attend as a CCARES member.

Also, Steve Herbert and I met with the Facility Engineer at Southern California Hospital a of Culver City, formerly known as Brotman, and completed site selection for two more AREDN MESH nodes.  We were very pleased with the sampling results that we were able to get and found two great locations, one on each building.  The two radios should be installed next week and will serve as the central backbone for our network!

If you need assistance or advice on what to purchase for your AREDN node, please contact myself or Steve Herbert.
