Rather than rely on the latest technology to maintain communications during an emergency, a group of active retirees in the Plymouth Village, California retirement community has become licensed amateur radio operators and is “familiarizing themselves with a disaster relief plan if emergency personnel are unable to reach the retirement community” in a timely manner.  Keith Kasin, the Plymouth Village Executive Director a licensed amateur radio operator himself, is leading the group, which meets weekly to practice emergency communications procedures.  Once voluneers are trained and tested, Plymouth Village will have around 30 certified amateur radio operators working to keep the community safe.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
