It wasmy privilege to serve as ARES® (Amateur Radio Emergency Service) Emergency Coordinator for Albemarle/Charlottesville/UVa for about five years.  I have stepped down as EC but am still an active ARES® member, focused on infrastructure.  See https://www.aresvaalb.org/ for more information.

I operate an amateur radio digital mesh and Winlink network (CVADN, https://www.cvadn.net/) for emergency response and public service.

Standards and training are essential to emergency planning, response, and recovery.  My training includes:
