Simulated Emergency Test Exercise 2022

2022 Florida ARES Simulated Emergency Test (SET)

The SET is planned for the morning of October 1, 2022 beginning at 0900 EDT/0800 CDT and will last around 4 hours.

The SET is ARRL’s primary national emergency exercise and is designed to assess the skills and preparedness of Amateur Radio Emergency Service® (ARES®) volunteers, as well as those affiliated with other organizations involved in emergency and disaster response. Simulated emergency tests and other exercises give us the opportunity to test our skills and equipment in a “real world” type scenario.

If you wish to help participate in this exercise in Santa Rosa County, please use this link. This is an excellent opportunity to practice for what a real activation would look like. The experience and skills you gain from this will be extremely valuable for you as an ARES team member.
