ARPSC Meeting Minutes Monday September 17, 2012


9-17-12 Meeting Minutes @ Lansing EOC 

Tether Training – 10 people have taken the tether class to be able to be on the roof.  We will be working the 3:30pm game this Saturday (9/22/12) – arrival time at noon.  Update: This game canceled – planning to work following home game.  

Service Hours – Make sure to turn in hours that you have worked for the ARPSC outside of documented nets and service events.

Picnic – Jerry Waite, Bob Berger, and Daniel Beuchert were recognized at the CERT/ARPSC Picnic.  Jim Greiner received the ARPSC Leadership award for 2012.  

Skywarn – Erv's team is on for Skywarn this week.  

ATV Kits – Al have been groomed except for the kits used for MSU football games.  Two kits (91 + 92) were used.

MSU Football Game (Notre Dame) – Video took 5 hours to get running this game with the new setup and network cables.  Make sure that radios are with you at all times as cell phone service is very unreliable due to network overloading.  Text messages should work better than voice, but the radios work much better than the phones.

Service Opportunities:

  • Sparrow Hospice Walk – Sunday, October 7 @ Gander Meadows Park, Dewitt (11a-2p)
  • Veterans Day Parade – Sunday, November 11th, possibly using packet.  
  • Silver Bells – Friday before Thanksgiving (November 16th)
  • Special Olympics – All day Saturday and half day Sunday at Eastern HS Don Johnson Field house, Eastern HS gym, and bowling at Royal Scott.  More details will be coming from Jim.

Skywarn Training – Setup will be starting. We will be starting to contact the NWS and LCC to get the training setup.

Background Checks – Background checks are going to be getting reviewed on a rotating basis in the future.
