Texas SATERN Group Targets New Objectives, Training and Members

Dallas, TX – Salvation Army Team Emergency Radio Network (SATERN) is moving forward with plans for recruitment of new members which will include an enhanced training program. Texas Division Emergency Disaster Services Director, Alvin Migues states: “We see SATERN as an essential component of our overall disaster response strategy. Our SATERN Committee will guide us through the process of developing a three part plan to include recruitment, training and deployment tactics.”  The Texas Division is in the process of customizing a new Mobile Command Vehicle with Satellite Communications ready to deploy quickly to any disaster affected site. This Unit along with fixed radio sites, including the Disaster Services Warehouse, will increase the Divisions communications capabilities during a disaster.  SATERN in the Texas Division will also be assisting in the National Mass Care Exercise from June 8-10, 2015 in Austin, Texas.
