The AREC Management Team arrived on site at the Branch 46 Clubrooms shared with SAR in sunny Masterton this morning to find a real SAR operation underway! National Director Jeff Sayer ZL4JS welcomed visitors while managing search comms on a VHF handheld.
John ZL4JY Area Manager Central was on hand to represent our interests with area managers from Northern, Southern, and Midlands (ZK1, ZK8, ZK9, and ZK4 call areas).
A key outcome of the meeting was the decision to build a web site to improve communications for the increasing range of stakeholders including the public, SAR Secretariat, SLA partners (Police and RCC), NZART Council and members. This has been established at both the http://AREC.today and http://www.arec.org.nz addresses.
