Is your RACES Plan current? The Santa Luisa County or city model RACES plan is the format for jurisdictions using Amateur Radio operators in California. OES agencies needing a copy should contact their nearest State OES Region office. Jurisdictions requesting FEMA matching funds must (a) have a current RACES Plan approved by State OES and (b) in the approved model plan format.
CA State OES began the Bulletins in the early 1950's to assist agencies and radio operators to become more familiar with RACES. They were issued periodically until 1985, at which time they began to be issued weekly over voice and digital radio systems of Amateur Radio and in print. Originally intended for California, increased demand, and a 1988 request by the ARRL for national distribution, led to their eventual worldwide distribution.
