Learn more about how to prepare Issaquah and nearby communities for disasters during Field Day 2015, an annual amateur radio exercise to encourage emergency communications preparedness nationwide.
You’re invited to join volunteers — including the Issaquah Communications Support Team — at Mercer Island’s Luther Burbank Park for a simulated emergency exercise.
Join radio operators and volunteers from Issaquah, Mercer Island, Redmond and Bellevue to learn what you can do to be more prepared, and discover local volunteer opportunities.
The event is 1-5 p.m. June 27, 2015, at the park, 2040 84th Ave. S.E., Mercer Island.
Field Day 2015 marks the first time Eastside cities and volunteers have worked together for the National Field Day event.
The emphasis of Field Day 2015 is about the capacity of the community to help itself during emergencies.
