PARC ARES Chair Bob Sanders, N5TBD, has advised us in the last ARES meeting that reflective vests such as these will be a requirement in almost any emergency deployment scenario. Bob suggests that we all purchase a vest from the ARRL. You can purchase your own from the links above, or you can bring cash, check or a money order in to the next ARES meeting on July 13th, and we can submit a bulk order for all ARES members and save some money on shipping. If necessary the vests can be paid for once they are received.
