I don’t have all the numbers in yet, but thus far, Linn County ARES and affiliated groups put in just over 2400 staff-hours on public service and emergency events in 2013! This excludes an event in November for which I don’t yet have a report, and Field Day, which falls in its own category.
Some (but not all) of the events covered this year:
- Marion Marathon
- Marion Arts Fest half-marathon & 5k
- Pigman and Pigman Sprint
- Witch Watch
- DAEC drills
- Swamp Fox
- Several storm events
2013 was remarkably busy, and remarkably successful. My heartfelt thanks to those of you who volunteered to keep things going!
