    Radio Communication and Service Frequently Asked Questions
    In response to many comments in the annual Park Ranger Safety Survey, and to help in our collective reaction to the COVID-19 crises, I'm pleased to share with you the latest product from the Park Ranger Community of Practice (CoP) Advisory Board. The attached "Radio Communication and Service Frequently Asked Questions" document addresses the top 25 most asked radio questions/concerns from the 2016-2019 USACE Park Ranger Safety Surveys. These questions have been answered by the national ACE-IT Radio Group, and include specific instructions on how to solve these 25 encountered issues. Virtually all the radio issues and concerns identified in the surveys have solutions under the existing ACE-IT Radio Program. This information may prove to be even more valuable as we operate more remotely under the current challenges.

    This document serves as a guide for Natural Resources Management program employees to follow in order to solve radio issues and is a product of the Park Ranger CoP Advisory Board. The goal of this board, is to focus on employee safety and security at USACE projects by obtaining employee input in a timely and consistent manner in order to recommend program improvements and stay relevant in a changing environment.

    POC for this action is Scott Tichy, Advisor, Park Ranger CoP Advisory Board. Please contact Mr. Tichy at scott.c.tichy@usace.army.mil, or your Board representative (DLL-Park Ranger Community of Practice (CoP) Advisory Board ) if you have any questions or have additional input for this document which can be modified as more information becomes available. This document will be posted under "Headquarters E- mails and Memos" and linked to the "Park Rangers," "Important News Items," and "New Postings" pages on the NRM Gateway.

    Speaking on behalf of the leadership here at headquarters, I appreciate the excellent work of the Park Ranger CoP Advisory Board in providing yet another useful product for the NRM Community of Practice.

    Stephen Austin, Natural Resources Manager
    Senior Policy Advisor for Park Ranger Activities
