News from the Giles County RACES Emergency Radio Officer

News from 
Brian (W4PAJ):

Last Updated: March 26, 2003:   

I received confirmation on the meeting place for the
RACES meeting.  It will be held at the Pearisburg Fire
Hall at 7pm this Thursday (27th).  Although we have not
had a meeting for a while, I'm keeping the meeting time
to one hour.

Many thanks to Adam and Rusty (Fire Chief) for their

I look forward to seeing everyone there. 

Very 73,


Today, the Giles County government asked me to again accept
the appointment of Chief RACES Officer for Giles County.  As
before, I accepted the appointment and have instituted Gerry
Clark (K4GWC) and Vic Lafon (W4VLL) as Deputy RACES Officers.
We currently have 12 RACES members in Giles with the new
Acting County Administrator, Chris McClarney, overseeing the
RACES organization.

In these uncertain times it is imperative that we provide rock-solid
support for Giles County and its citizens.   I know each of you are
dedicated to this end.  Giles County is very fortunate to have such a
professional and experienced volunteer ecomm team.

In March we will have a meeting to discuss the coming year and what
we can do to ensure ecomm is one less thing the Giles County government
has to worry over.

The meeting date, time, and location will be forthcoming.  Should
you have any questions, please contact me anytime.

Very Best Regards,

Brian (W4PAJ)

In addition to my duties as Emergency Radio Officer and RACES Radio
Officer for Giles County,  I have accepted the position of District
Emergency Radio Officer of District 13 effective immediately.   My
DERO  duties will not affect or take away from my responsibilities in
Giles County.
District 13 is comprised of 13 counties, including the city of Roanoke.
It has a history of being one of the most active districts in the Commonwealth.
I look forward to serving this District and hope all VA RACES members join me
in building a solid ecomm base from which to serve our communities.

Very Best Regards,
Brian Squibb (W4PAJ)
