Every Monday night, the Arizona Emergency Net – Maricopa meets on 2 meters FM for training and exercise in the public service communication arts. We focus on preparation and readiness for public service – be it scheduled events like bike races or drills, or emergencies such as storm damage or terrorist attacks. Someone has to be ready. This net is dedicated to addressing that challenge. The Arizona Emergency Net – Maricopa also activates during threats or emergencies affecting Maricopa County

One definition of public service communications is working with people who don’t use radios.  Rest stop captains, supply truck drivers, cyclists, walkers, and runners, lost children, event staff, medical professionals, volunteers, evacuees, and others.  It's best if we learn to speak their "language".  We'll demonstrate and discuss ways to be successful and not come off like amateurs in the worst sense of the word.
