ACS and RACES do not self-activate.  They are activated only at the request of the local government.
This includes drills, training and exercises.
Hmm, Seems to me that  SET, Field Day and many other training events are self activated (ARES/ARRL activated) and not local government  requested.

You want to read this FEMA document a few times....
http://www.citizencorps.gov/cert/downloads/pdf/CERT_Liability_Guide.pdf


Wondering if you took much away of significance from the CERT document - so fully couched full of maybes, possibly, mights and other qualifiers?

I took away the common sense idea that if you plan well you reduce risk, but not a whole lot more.

The disclaimer pretty well spells it out:

Disclaimer of Liability

This Guide is offered for general informational purposes only, and without warranty of any kind. It does not provide legal or other professional advice. It does not address specialized liability issues, such as credentialing and privileging of health care workers and privacy laws. Every effort has been made to provide useful and accurate information, but descriptions of the law have necessarily been generalized and may not reflect the law in a particular state. The user is encouraged to consult with a legal advisor, a human resources professional, or a risk manager, as appropriate, for more in-depth information about specific issues. Users who coordinate or manage a local CERT program sponsored by a government agency are encouraged to consult the agency’s legal advisor. Finally, keep in mind that following the recommendations in this Guide is no guarantee against being sued.


With the last line Finally, keep in mind that following the recommendations in this Guide is no guarantee against being sued. pretty well sums it up not only for the guide but arguably for Emcom participation as a whole.
