Emergency Preparedness Commission Monthly HOA Radio Drill
The Rancho Mirage Emergency Preparedness Commission (EPC) conducts a monthly test of the City’s Disaster Response Radio Repeater. Any community in Rancho Mirage is encouraged to purchase one or more radios and participate in the monthly radio drill. The City does not provide the radios, they must be purchased separately through a third-party vendor, who will also program the radio for the appropriate frequencies. The purpose of the drill is to exercise the use of the radio, remain familiar with how the radio and repeater work, and what radio transmissions will sound like. In the event of an actual disaster situation, such as a major earthquake, users are encouraged to turn-on and listen for important information from appropriate authorities, as it becomes available.
