Radio Emergency Associated Communications Teams
For the past 41 years, I have been a member of one of the most worthwhile volunteer organizations I can think of. REACT (Radio Emergency Associated Communications Teams) is an organization of various sized groups of people who volunteer their time, energy, equipment and yes, sometimes money (TAX DEDUCTIBLE!) to help make their communities a better, safer place to live.
The team I started with (my 'home team') was located In Fremont, NE (Dodge County REACT #2750) and a finer bunch of people I cannot imagine. I have been a Life Member of REACT now for 40+ years and am currently forming a Team in Greensboro, NC. If you are in the Greensboro/High Point area, call 336-897-0641 for info on GREENSBORO REACT
REACT provides radio communications for all sorts of things, plus safety patrols, event control, disaster preparedness and response and even emergency medical assistance.
If you are looking for a worthwhile cause to make your life complete, I urge you to see if there is a team in your area and join it. If there isn't one, contact REACT International at:1-866-REACT99.
