Test Planned for County’s Emergency Communications Tower

Sheridan County Emergency Management, with the assistance of volunteers from Cloud Peak Amateur Radio and Electronics Group (HAM radio club), has scheduled a test of the County’s Emergency Management Communication Tower during the weekend of November 13.  This *is not* a test of the emergency broadcast system which transmits messages over the TV or cell phones.  It will involve testing back-up radio communications and frequencies used by law enforcement, fire, and EMS. 

In preparation for the weekend test, the tower will be temporarily located in the Red Grade Road parking lot of the Land Trust trail head above the paved snowmobile unloading areas, starting Wednesday, November 10 – Monday, November 15. Parking space will be impacted during this time period.  

Questions can be directed to Sheridan County Emergency Management at 307-675-2569, or 307-752-2174.
