Public Service Assistance to Boerne Police for Solar Eclipses - Volunteers Needed! On October 4th, KARS met with Captain Steve Perez of the Boerne Police Department regarding KARS members assisting with the two eclipses passing over the area. Captain Perez would like to incorporate our communications capabilities into their planning. He noted the cell phone system has been overwhelmed during past events and he wants to ensure that doesn’t hinder their response. His minimum requirements from KARS are:
  1. A station in the Emergency Operations Center (EOC)
  2. A station on Main St to cover the Hill Country Mile Rod Run
  3. A station at the Methodist Boerne Medical Center, Menger Springs, Boerne
* They could add additional assignments if we have enough interest from our members.
