2018 Pasco County Disaster Expo

The Pasco County Division of Emergency Management would like to invite you to the 2018 Disaster Expo. The Expo will be Saturday, June 9, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. The goal of the Expo will be to provide as much property and life-saving information, as it relates to disaster preparedness to as many people as we possibly can.

We hope to see you there!

The 2017 Pasco County Disaster Planning Guide is Here!

This year’s guide contains vital preparedness information including how to protect your home, family, and pets; what to expect after the storm; insuring against disaster; and much more.

Also included in your guide, is an evacuation map and storm shelter listing.

Do you know your evacuation zone?

Guides are available through the Pasco Office of Emergency Management and several other locations such as your local Post Office or at a Pasco County Library.

Partial credit for expired license

The FCC now offers partial credit for expired General, Advanced or Extra Amateur Radio licenses. A license that has expired and gone beyond the two year grace period will be canceled in the FCC system. The licensee will not automatically qualify for a new license. At a minimum, previous license holders must take the current 35-question Technician exam at a VE exam session to return to Amateur Radio. The FCC will issue a new call sign and a new license when the Technician exam is passed.

In other words. If you have let your license expire and can produce evidence you were previously licensed, you can take the Technician License test and when you pass it you will regain your General or Extra Class license (with a new callsign)
