Emergency Coordinator Named
By Kelly Waters
WAYMART – During a meeting of the Wayne County Amateur Radio Club on Monday, Dave Corey, KC3AX, of Lake Ariel, was appointed as the Emergency Communications Coordinator for the Amateur Radio Emergency Service program (ARES), which is part of the American Radio Relay League (ARRL).
Wayne County Commissioner Jonathan Fritz and W.T. Jones, Section Emergency Coordinator for eastern Pennsylvania were also in attendance.
The Wayne County ARES works closely with the Wayne County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) to assist when needed.
Corey has 35 years of experience as an amateur radio operator. He has also served as a Wayne County EMA Radio Officer.
“I’m looking forward to working with them and the updated mandates that have been set,” Corey stated. “I’m looking forward to taking on the challenge. The ARRL is a great organization.”
Fritz commended Corey on the position.“I want to give a tip of the hat to Dave,” stated Fritz. He’s very professional and he is dedicated to what he does. “Wayne County will be well served by Corey and the other dedicated Amateur Radio Operators." Fritz also commended about the organization for what they do. “How many people go about their daily lives... and not understand the network that’s out there… of people who have a responsibility to look out for our best interests, health and safety,” he said. “You folks play an integral part in that process. I want to extend a heartfelt thanks...please keep it up for local and national security".
Jones added he’s looking forward to working with Corey. “Dave Corey, KC3AX, brings a tremendous amount of practical experience and dedication to the position of the ARRL ARES EC,” he stated. “His greatest challenge as time goes forward will be recruiting more Amateur Radio Operators as ARES Volunteers. I have no doubt that Dave will rise to that challenge and build an ARES organization that will be a model for the rest of our Eastern PA section.”
