In this video, I share my lessons learned after working my first public service event. I’ll walk you through the event timeline, what worked well, what didn’t work well, and how this experience will inform how I prepare for the next wilderness public service event.



The sixteen counties of the Northeast Wisconsin Public Safety Communications group (NEWCOM) hosted mobile communications equipment from around the region and the state at Marathon County Park (Marathon County, City of Wausau). In this video we take a tour of some of the equipment and test the interoperability between different public safety agencies and amateur radio. Our ARES/RACES group participated in a public safety emergency communications drill.
