North Salt Lake Fireworks Support July 3, 2018

The City of North Salt Lake will be hosting their annual fireworks event on July 3rd, at Eaglewood Golf Course.  The public is invited to this event, and continues to be an exciting event every year, that attracts thousand of people for this event.


The City of North Salt Lake has requested assistance for the event communication during the Fireworks event this year. I will be organizing the Amateur Radio support for this event, and want to extend the invitation to assist with the Fireworks Event

What will we be doing? We will be communicating with the attendees about the keep out area, and the NSLPD about anything we see or hear.  We are keeping folks out of the fireworks keep out zone, off of the greens, out of the skydiver landing zone, out of the possible RC airplane pilot areas, and out of the ponds.  We will also be watching for lost children or other (medical, or disturbance) problems and generally being extra eyes and ears for the NSLPD. We may help with the vendor parking entrance, prior to the golf course opening.

It is very laid back, and you have the opportunity for a front seat to the fireworks; I have a lot of couples come together to help out, get some vendor food, watch the activities and the fireworks.  It is a super easy way to help the community, practice a little radio, and get some entertainment in! We have some skydivers this year.  There are vendors, and most of the time there is a BBQ dinner with NSLPD.

 The Incident Commander holds a briefing at 16:00, with an event opening at 18:00, parking at the golf course is available by pass for volunteers. We will have the SDMFA Command Center with us to use, and can use the golf carts for transport.  If you can come at 16:00, please do so, to help cover the parking lot entrances.  Otherwise plan on being there at 18:00.  I have room in my vehicle if you would like to be up there at 16:00 and leave approximately 23:00. We will use the ARES simplex frequencies 145.570 Mhz (primary) and 145.750 Mhz (backup) for the event. Talk-in will be on 145.570. No tone or codes needed.
