Mount Washington Valley ARESThe simulated emergency test that took place on Saturday November 8th, 2014 started off slow, but went well once it started.  Memorial Hospital was able to send digital messages as far as the York County EOC in Maine. This year there were the same amount of check-ins as last year!  A message from the SET Coordinator advised that it was a success through the state and was great practice in emergency communications!  If you were active in the SET please provide an after action report on how things went.
