Hi, my name is Samson Jack Ehrenberg. I am currently working towards the rank of Eagle as a Boy Scout. My Eagle Scout Service project is setting up a disaster/emergency communications center for the community and church of Chatsworth Lake Manor. I would need the funds by no later than December 1st. In addition so that the communication center will not need appointed staffing, I have hosted  an Ameteur Radio Operators License class for the community of Lake Manor. This gives members of the community, who attend,  the ability to legally use the radios I will be setting up. This also has the added bonus of guaranteeing that if enough people from the community earn their license there will always be someone available to respond in an emergency or disaster.

One might not think communication in a disaster or emergency situation is that much of a problem, but I would like you to consider the recent wildfire in Santa Rosa, California. It claimed the lives of 42 people. This wildfire is just one example of a natural catastrophe that recently occurred in which communication could have possibly saved lives. A center like the one I will be setting up might have made a difference. From a logistical viewpoint the effect of one or two communication centers might not have made much of a difference on a large scale. But, if my communication center had saved even one person I would be satisfied because I know that I at least made a difference to that one person’s life.

The funds will be used for buying ham radio equipment, desks, shelving and other materials I will need to complete my project.

Raising money through GoFundMe will be a great advantage to me because I can reach so many more people online as opposed to talking face to face with them. Any amount that you can give is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
