1. Introduction

On May 12 the section will conduct a statewide digital drill. Unlike recent exercises, the drill will be aimed at ARES programs with no planned NTS participation. However, Districts may choose to enlist the aid of their designated NTS net.
This is intended to be a very simple exercise to test digital capabilities. There should be plenty of time for each county to conduct local exercises practicing those skills important to that jurisdiction.
