Here’s an update from Joe (AH0A) on ARES efforts during the California wildfires.  Joe also lists some current youtube videos regarding that largely uncontrolled blaze which has killed more than 20 people and has burned homes, forest lands, and businesses.

“Hi all,

Just when we might have thought a Puerto Rico could not happened again,
the fires in California are a wakeup call to the importance of preparing
for the “big event” and ARES training.  Keeping up with developing
EMCOMM technologies is part of the challenge.

Ham Nation just posted an interview  of Gregory Kruckewitt ( KG6SJT) the
ARRL Sacramento Valley SEC (Section Emergency Coordinator).  His
description of the ARES support for Red Cross shelters is worthwhile
seeing. https://youtu.be/qHP-crOn7Ic?t=2738

Speaking of technology (well Greg does in the YouTube) a great example
is the interactive map shown in the interview that allows zooming from
an orbital view of the area down to a specific house with a link to a
photo of its lot – either destroyed or still standing.  How this is
done and kept updated is an impressive use of Internet technology.
