Annual Simulated Emergency Test
Every year, on the first Saturday in August, Mississippi ARES holds its annual Simulated Emergency test (SET). The annual SET is the biggest and most important day of the year for ARES members in Mississippi. This is the one day each year when all of our ARES leaders and their ARES Team members work together to test our capabilities to pass local, county-wide, district-wide, and statewide emergency messages on behalf of the agencies we serve.
The purpose of this annual test is to give us feedback on how prepared our state, district, and county ARES teams and amateur radio networks are to handle emergency traffic during a real emergency or disaster. This allows us to spot weak areas which need to be worked on and corrected before a real emergency occurs.
By holding our test on the first Saturday in August we are also making sure our skills are sharp, our equipment freshly tested, and our ARES members prepared for hurricane season, which begins peaking in mid-August to early September in the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico.
All ARES members are expected to participate in this important annual training event.
