      PLEASE DO NOT SELF-DEPLOY TO HURRICANE-STRICKEN AREAS

      It appears that a message presumably sent by an SEC in one of the
      hurricane-stricken eastern states asked for amateurs to self-deploy to
      provide relief communications in this area. Please do not self-deploy!
      ARES officials are requested to determine with certainty that any
      requests received for deployment by amateurs in Kentucky, Michigan or
      Ohio (the Great Lakes Division) are from authorized personnel before
      forwarding such requests. Self-deployment at best is ineffective and at
      worst very detrimental to disaster relief operations.

      Again, please do not self-deploy. Deploy only if requested to do so by
      authorized individuals such as from state emergency management, the
      Salvation Army, the Red Cross or ARRL ARES officials who provide specific
      assignments for you to fill.

      Tnx, 73,

      Jim
