PARC ARES Now Has A Twitter Account

The Panhandle Amateur Radio Club’s Amateur Radio Emergency Service group (PARC ARES) now has a Twitter account, @PanhandleARES, as an extension of the www.PanhandleARES.org website. There is no cost to the PARC for this account, and it will be maintained by KE5ZRT. The Twitter account will allow us to communicate more easily with the surrounding ARES groups in the region. We will also be able to receive and forward information from local, regional and national emergency services groups such as FEMA, TxDOT, Red Cross, local and national media, NWS personnel and more.  Further, @PanhandleARES will facilitate another avenue of dissemination of information. Please follow @PanhandleARES for news of local events related to the PARC, PARC ARES, and pertinent local emergency information.
