Comment:

The ARRL website contains a wealth of knowledge for the radio amateur with topics covering equipment reviews, technical tips, projects, news, upcoming events, contests, dx-peditions, conventions, and public service.

It’s the area of public service that caught my attention today as I was looking for material on ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Service).  I stumbled across the current addition of the ARES Manual and was surprised just how detailed the document is.  Because Hawaii is prone to a variety of natural disasters such as tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and even choking vog, it behooves radio amateurs in Hawaii to be prepared to render communications service in times of emergency.  Much of our response is done by volunteer radio amateurs belong to ARES and other emergency communications agencies.

I’ve attached a web address which can be used to download all 85 pages of this important document.  A lot of time and effort went into this publication, which covers everything from the ARES mission, training, and interaction with partner agencies to the memoranda of understanding between the ARRL and served agencies, such as the American Red Cross.  The manual also includes the various forms used with the Incident Command System (ICS).  When you become an ARES volunteer, you will be expected to know how the ICS works and your special relationship with served agencies.

Take some time to read this document.  It will become a valuable part of your training as an ARES volunteer.
