FEMA Think Tank

Ken Johnson, Region 9 DAE, Telecommunication

I am interested in Apps for smart phones and I-Pads. I am also a Amateur Radio Operator and use my I-Pad on the amateur radio apps known as "ECHOLINK". This ties into many radio links and is tie into many city,county and state EOC's. This system is being used by amateurs in connection with emergency groups such as ARES/RACES.


Being a FEMA DAE I beleive an app should be looked into for use during disastors be able for FEMA Responders in the feild to communicate to JFO's. Also the capability to interface to FEMA HF FNARS Net.


Just some idea's for the think tank
