Hurst Mall Watch Volunteer Opportunity

Mall Watch is a program where we team up with both Hurst Police, and Mall Security to provide extra eyes, looking for suspicious activity. We generally do two hour shifts, operating in a loose ARES net, where net control takes reports from field operators around North East Mall.

If anyone is interested in participating, we will have a training session to go over duties and expectations during the event. The details:

  • It is a month long operation, starting on Black Friday
  • Operates every weekend from Thanksgiving weekend until the weekend of or before Christmas Eve, but also including Black Friday.
  • Two hour shifts, five positions, one NCS
  • ALL hours count towards the Hurst City VIA program.
  • Open to all Amateur Radio Operators, Technician class or higher, and you do NOT have to be a member of the Hurst Club.
  • Training and Q&A will be held at the Hurst EOC located at the Hurst Fire Station #2, 837 W. Pipeline Road
