A contact with Dufferin ARES (which is somewhere in Canada), sent us this message, which was sent to all members:
I received a call from the works department today enquiring if I knew of an amateur who owns a blue pickup with three antennas.
Apparently, on Monday of this week during the height of the storm one of the county’s snow ploughs was involved in an accident on Veterans Way located near the new site of Humber College.
The owner of the truck began erecting road closed signs along with cones.
The county is concerned that the only people authorized to erect road closed signs is the OPP (Ontario Provincial Police).
I am sure the owner of the pickup felt he was helping out but if he is an amateur, please remember that our only jurisdiction is in communications.
I advised the county that I did not think this person was an A.R.E.S. member but would ask the membership. If you can assist me, please advise.
Thanks to our anonymous submitter!!
