Practicing for an emergency

Local and state disaster response teams powered up emergency communications systems in Sitka this weekend, testing the compatibility and coverage of their two-way radio systems. The Alaska National Guard brought equipment to keep radios working for police, fire, and mountain rescue teams even if local antennas are lost. Sending a portable system to the top of Harbor Mountain enables continued communication with outlying communities as well.
