The Minnesota Emergency Communicatins Team has recently benefitted from the generosity of HealthEast, who donated an ambulance, a wheelchair accessible van, and multiple two-way radios to the organization to be used in the field and for administrative purposes. This generous donation has positively affected the service level able to be provided to the community by The Minnesota Emergency Communications Team, spefically with their gift of the working ambulance donated in March, 2013. See photo above.
The purpose of the Minnesota Emergency Communications Team is to assist the community during natural disasters, missing persons crises, and other events in which radio communications are necessary. In doing so we are performing a service to the community in times of crises. Immediate, effective and reliable radio communications is the greatest need when trying to work together to solve emergency crises -- whether it be a bridge collapse or another emergency such as the 9/11 attacks on the U.S., earthquake, flooding, or other crises.
To provide a public service during disasters, emergencies, search and rescue and public events utilizing radio communications equipment and volunteer teams of licensed ham radio operators and emergency response units. By maintaining the radio community we are guaranteeing ourselves a way to communicate in times of crises, whether local or nationwide. To those who have already filled many of these roles, i.e., police, fire, medics, doctors, nurses, and our armed forces, our thanks and gratitude goes out to you, and we look forward to being able to work in partnership with you.
