ARES Resources

Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES)

A Quick Training and Field Resource Guide for the Emergency Communicator is available’ the ARES Field Guide is in Adobe pdf format. This is a must read for every Amateur who expects to be deployed in the field for emergency services work. Based primarily on ARES operations, these principles can be adapted by any local group or agency.

This paper contains a number of templates that can be adapted to your locality and situation. A great resource for any Communicator.

The ARES e-Letter is published monthly on the ARRL Website here: Published Monthly on the ARRL Website

WCEC Emergency Operations Plan

In conjunction with the ARES Field Plan members should read the Wood County Emergency Communication plan for specifics on operating as a member of WCEC. Remember never “just show up” at a disaster scene uninvited.
