Harbor Days
The last weekend of September Oceanside hosts “Harbor Days”, two days of fun filled activities for the whole family. Oceanside CERT has an information/first aid booth set up and the communications team demonstrates “Ham Radio” capabilities.

Turkey Trot

Every Thanksgiving morning approximately 10,000 runners of all ages descend on Oceanside for a “morning run before the meal” with Oceanside CERT and the Communications Team providing crowd and traffic control as well as communications support.

City Fireworks
July 3rd brings the annual City Fireworks Display. Oceanside CERT supports this event with an information/first aid booth as well as roving first aid teams. A communications “net” is established and a Ham is assigned to each team.

The Oceanside CERT Communications team has been given a desk in the Oceanside Emergency Operations Center. In the event of an emergency CERT Ham Radio Operators can funnel reports from all over the city into the EOC providing city planners with real time information.
