On Monday June 19 at the Santa Rosa County Board of County Commissioners meeting, we received a proclamation for “Amateur Radio Week in our county. We greatly appreciate the board for taking time each year to recognize the contributions that our amateur radio operators provide to Santa Rosa County.
Unexpectedly, Tom Lloyd, the Public Safety/Emergency Management Director, took time at the County Commission meeting to recognize Arc Thames W4CPD for his individual contributions to Santa Rosa County. While Arc is our ARES Emergency Coordinator, he also wears many additional hats as part of his volunteerism with the county. Arc serves as the CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) coordinator and the Alternate Logistics Section Chief for Santa Rosa County Emergency Management. Thanks, Arc, for all you do for our county! If you’d like to watch the proclamation and Arc’s recognition, the video is available on Youtube via this link.
