Marin Emergency Radio Authority (MERA)
At the recent MERA Radio Test on January 11th, once again, we had a 100% all clear test. Thanks for your participiation.
The Marin County Radio Shop is recommending that the old radios and antennas be disposed of now that the new radios are in place. It is advised that we remove some of the "frequency determining elements" from each of the radios, which the radio shop is willing to do, if we can have the radios delivered to a central location (MCOE). Accordingly, we are asking that you have your old radio delivered to MCOE to a location identified in our shipping and receiving area. MERA is instructing school districts to remove and dispose of antennas and power supplies.
Our next MERA Radio Drill will be at 9:30 am on Wednesday, February 1, 2017 – which will be a Local Talk Groups Drill. We'll be in touch in advance of that Drill to provide a reminder and instructions. Click here for the 2016-17 MERA Drill schedule.
Safe Routes to School
Every four years Safe Routes to Schools is required to provide an Evaluation Report to the Transportation Authority of Marin. In order to help compile this information, it is important that all schools and districts participate in the annual Safe Routes to Schools surveys to ensure accurate data reporting, to support increased student "green trips" and school contributions to congestion relief.
Please note, that the surveys are conducted every Fall and Spring at elementary school, middle school and high school. The Spring 2017 surveys will be conducted May 16-17-18 this year, and for the first time will be conducted on-line. Instructions and reminders will be sent out by Safe Routes to School Marin County.
