I had the cable between the relays and the pi plugged in BACKWARDS!!!!

Some of Saturday mornings' work crew which installed FREE smoke detectors in Gillette and Wright homes. Pictured are Red Cross Volunteers from Gillette, Cheyenne and Casper, along with members of the Campbell County Emergency Response Team (CERT) in the black and yellow vests and the North East Wyoming Amateur Radio Association. Not pictured are two more CERT Volunteers and three members of the Campbell County Fire Department, plus the volunteers who did the installs in Wright. Red Cross plans to do more installations each clubs, organizations or individuals that would like to help out should contact the Red Cross in Gillette. --Posted by Campbell County Emergency Management.

Just a reminder...Communications Exercise tomorrow (Saturday) morning mixed in with the Red Cross Smoke Detector Installation project! 8:30 a.m. for breakfast at Fire Station 1, then will break up into teams of three (with one radio operator in each team) to do the smoke detector installations in homes. (I know of some that plan on doing the NEWARA Breakfast at 7:30 ish, then heading over for the 8:30 breakfast/kickoff)

Red Cross says the focus will be Fox Park Subdivision...but they have other addresses scattered around of Senior Citizens/low income families needing installs. (Red Cross says they'll have tools and everything you'll need, but I'd think having your own cordless drill and screwdriver would be handy.)

We'll have a couple of loaner HT's if you don't have one right now...and will also have some Wyolink HT's on 17-EMA2 talkgroup for non-hams to use. Currently our plan is to use the mobile command unit as a comm center at Fox Park, working a tactical net on a simplex frequency so we don't jam up the repeater unnecessarily.

If not part of the CERT Team which will be wearing their CERT Vests...NEWARA Members will want to be wearing their NEWARA Vests.
