I was sitting at a water station on a March of Dimes walk Saturday. Started thinking about what I would do "if."
First, in this really informal situation, I'd call 911 before talking to net control. I started thinking about how I'd describe the location if I made the call.
"Magnolia Street on the CSU campus, by the water tower" would work. But, the actual address would work better.
Dispatch systems much prefer street addresses when figuring out who to send.
Even out in the sticks, it is often possible to conjure up a street address. Some GPS apps will find your address based on location.
The actual addresses of fixed posts ought to be included in our plans and given to both operators and net controls.
Something to add to a checklist of event to-do's.
