Looking for input and comments.
I no longer participate in RACES. They do good work, locally. But the disaster management command and control structure dictated by FEMA left me cold. So when I changed areas, I just never joined the local group.
I’m not involved in ham radio but it does seem to me that local operators who involve themselves with any government agency are making a serious mistake. When you do this, you will invariably be dictated to by the government agency. They just cannot resist that “pull on the string” and that almost always limits the good that local groups can do on their own.
