Here is a fairly short article about the fundamentals of radio communication, especially useful for introduction and helping people to see which 'radio tools' do what with a little bit of 'why' it works.

Thank You for the link. Anything that gets more Amateurs involved in emergency communications is a very positive thing.
We are having a hard time getting enough people to participate in our area, so maybe someone here will see this and decide to get involved. I could only wish, but thanks.

With all the "required" training now, it's no wonder. 

Quote
THOSE AMATEUR OPERATORS WHO MAY BE DEPLOYED TO EMERGENCY OPERATIONS CENTERS (EOCs), COMMAND POSTS, PUBLIC SAFETY ANSWER POINTS (911 CENTERS) OR OTHER POINTS WHERE INTERFACE WITH EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT OR GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS AT ANY LEVEL IS EXPECTED, ARE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE IS 100, IS 200, IS 700, and IS 800.

Some EOCs require additional courses. For example, IS-300 and IS-400

Recommended training and additional certifications but not required for ARES membership are

FEMA Courses (free). Many of these are required for the ARRL EC-016 course.
•IS-1  Emergency Manager An Orientation to the Position.
•IS-26  Guide to Points of Distribution.
•IS-120  An Introduction to Exercises.
•IS-130  Exercise Evaluation and Improvement Planning.
•IS-139  Exercise Design.
•IS-240  Leadership & Influence
•IS-241  Decision Making and Problem Solving
•IS-242  Effective Communication
•IS-244  Developing and Managing Volunteers.
•IS-250  Emergency Support Function 15 (ESF-15) External Affairs.
•IS-288  The Role of Voluntary Agencies in Emergency Management.
•NIMS ICS-300, Intermediate Incident Command System
 Highly recommended, but not required. It is a classroom course
•NIMS ICS-400, Advanced Incident Command System
 Recommended but not required. This is also a classroom course.
•IS-317  Introduction to Community Emergency Response Teams
•IS-802  Emergency Support Functions Communications
 
All members and leadership personnel
 

Throw in all the Politics and "pissin' contests" and I left 5 years ago.

It really is not that much hassle.  IS 100/200/700/800 are one time online courses and are pretty easy to take and pass.  Some EOCs require more in order to work IN the EOC, but usually that is only a couple people -- everyone else is out in the field and don't require the extra training.

W7ASA,
Thanks for posting the link with great content for people new to radio communications! Like what was presented and the style it was presented. Hope some folks out there will come across it and learn more from us HAMs as well.


AD5TD and all those who wonder about all the NIMS/ ICS/ IS training requirements:
If you are interested in doing EmComm without the overhead requirements, but with in-depth voice and digital comms training and friendly elmering, maybe give Air Force MARS a try. Yes, I have done ICS 100/ 200/ 300/ 700/ 800 and others, but you can do a world of good without having gone through that training.
Bill, I see on your QRZ page that you are already busy enough so I won't try to woo you over Wink  but some others here may want to give it a shot. (Sorry for hijacking this great thread! I won't say no more about it here!)

Happy New Year!

Though MARS doesn't require IS-100/200/700/800, it actually has more requirements than ARES including a MARS frequency capable radio, PACTOR capability, General class license, clean record, and minimum participation hours.

KD0SFY, respectfully request you to stop spreading incorrect info on MARS.

I concede that I should maybe have left it out from this thread and will not comment here on it anymore. Anyone interested may contact me directly to receive links to verified and true info about MARS.
