What’s Happening with Shilshole Prepares

Published by under Shilshole Prepares

Shilshole prepares website has been moved to be part of the Shilshole Blog.

  • The current Shilshole Prepares website was hacked numerous times and we had to completely eliminate the site and the hosting arrfangement.
  • Thanks to Kristen and Phil for re-invigorating the Shilshole Blog site and making it possible to host shilsholeprepares on this site.
  • It can still be reached through www.shilsholeprepares.org although there is no longer any requirement to register or log-in to access information.
  • Anyone can now author articles for the site.

There will be an Audible Alert Protocol test on February 27, 2016 at 12:00. 

  • Purpose: test audible alerting methods in case of an emergency and provide an audible signal to alert boaters to tune in Marine VHF 71, the Shilshole Vessel Mutual Assistance Net (V-MAN).
  • Test duration: less than 10 minutes
  • What will happen: five blasts on a horn will be sent out at 30-second intervals beginning at 12:00 noon and lasting for 3 minutes.
  • Anyone hearing the five-blast signal should
    • Tune to Marine VHF Channel 71 for more information.
    • Send their own five-blast signal on their horn, again at 30-second intervals, so that the audible alert is propagated throughout the marina.
  • Results and comments will be collected and the Audible Alert Protocol will be refined based on the results.
