|Saginaw Simulated Emergency Test
The 2007 SET was held at the MBS airport in Freeland at the old Tri City
Drag Strip. Students were bussed in to participate as
simulated victims. Firefighters from the surrounding counties came
to practice firefighting and rescue techniques on airplanes.
Ham Radio set up stations at the local hospitals, on transport busses
and at the main incident scene.
The 2006 Set will be held in Frankenmuth. This is an exciting time for ham radio operators; and a great chance for us to interact with government agencies and emergency services. Agencies from all over Saginaw County, plus the Coast Guard, FBI and other federal agencies will be participating in this simulated emergency. We will be testing the new 220 MHz voice/packet network, Amateur Television, and Transportation Communication methods.
