Sunset Empire Amateur Radio Club donated and helped install an amateur radio at Gearhart City Hall last week.

The radio allows city CERT teams to practice with a more powerful radio and coordinate exercises with Community Emergency Response Teams in other areas.

In an emergency, licensed amateur radio operators on city staff, including local CERT volunteers, can use the system to obtain assistance from outside the immediate area.
