I'm involved with a REACT group that as I write this is providing communications for a neighborhood Christmas Parade in San Diego. This is what our particular REACT group does; event communications for things like running events, bicycle events and, until the State Park System priced them out of existence, several back country equestrian events. The San Diego ARES group has the responsibility of providing communications for hospitals in the event of a major emergency and so far we've never had an actual "call-out." We do participate in state- mandated twice-yearly drills with the county hospital system. We place operators in Balboa Naval Hospital and the Navy Hospital Ship USNS Mercy participates if she's in port during the drill.
