Every Monday night, the Arizona Emergency Net – Maricopa meets on 2 meters FM for training and exercise in the public service communication arts. We focus on preparation and readiness for public service – be it scheduled events like bike races or drills, or emergencies such as storm damage or terrorist attacks. Someone has to be ready. This net is dedicated to addressing that challenge. The Arizona Emergency Net – Maricopa also activates during threats or emergencies affecting Maricopa County

24 stations looked at how judicious paperwork can benefit us.
Essentially, if communications is about moving information from Point A to Point B, then it's only reasonable to bring and collect as much relevant information at Point B as you can.  No need to ask the net for information that you can already have at your fingertips.
Some documentation or records you carry with you in the field (FCC license, comms plan, manuals for your radios, driver's license, personal medical info, etc.).
Some records you gather in the field (runner numbers through your location, tactical assignments, incident notes, names of people you work with, etc.).
Some records you complete after you return home (feedback comments, after-action reports, mileage records, volunteer hours, etc.).
Special thanks to Chris, K6OZY, for serving as Alternate Net Control.
