The latest version of the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) Emergency Telecommunications Guide is available for downloading in PDF format here. The guide was developed to provide the IARU member-societies with materials for training their members to participate in emergency/disaster response, but also provides guidance to the individual amateur operator for enhancing skill sets and a better understanding of basic theory and practice of handling emergency telecommunications traffic.
There is a wealth of technical information of interest to the ARES operator on the ARRL’s The Doctor Is In podcast. Start here for information on current programs and an archive of past shows.
