Hi, I had requested that a TG be created for discussions related to family and community disaster and emergency preparedness (i.e. "Prepare-Net"). I received an email reply from Chuck (K0XM) with a "noreply" email address that "There is already a TG for this. 9911 EmCommUS", so I can't reply by email and emails to the published "<body>link awaiting moderation</body>" address also bounces, so I will reply here, in the hopes that my request can be reconsidered:

"Chuck, thank you for your reply. I was under the impression that the EmCommUS talk group was for communications during an emergency in the US (such as wildfires, earthquakes, floods, hurricanes tornadoes, ARES planning etc), where the TG I was proposing was for people to talk about preparing for emergencies, including first-aid, food, water, power, community organization etc. Communications during an emergency was not the intent of the group I proposed.

Do you see the distinction between EmComm (Communications DURING AN EMERGENCY) and the group I propose related to conversations regarding family and community disaster planning/preparedness?

Thanks, Bob Slovick AD0HI"
