To support emergency communications groups and demonstrate what Amateur Radio could provide in emergency situations, large exercises known as ‘GlobalSET’ or ‘Global Simulated Emergency Tests’ were organised. These were great demonstrations of how we could work together as a global community and helped develop a common understanding of each others but they were not frequent enough for training to be embedded and created a lot of organisational work.
In 2022 the Region 1 Emergency Communications Co-Ordinators agreed to have a number of smaller exercises, tests and meetings through the year covering as many aspects of emergency communications as possible. The calendar below will contain links to details on the event as they are developed.
