Been asked to share the following with all ARES members in Miami Country.  I know some have completed the FEMA training while others may be un-aware of this requirement.  The training can be completed on line at http://training.fema.gov/emi.aspx.  If you have not taken any of the training before, you will need to register as a new user, look for the “Apply” selection just below the FEMA banner at the top.

The Emergency Management Institute’s Mission: To support the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA’s goals by improving the competencies of the U.S. officials in …

 

“Hello all! Thank you so much for your time and energy during 2015!  The December totals are in, and that gives us some firm numbers. We average 1,700 members across the Ohio Section. Those members contributed over 55,500 hours in training, exercising, conducting nets and performing public service. Of those hours, over 2,000 was directly involved in providing emergency communications!  This positions ARES as a viable emergency resource in Ohio!

 For the coming year, we have some goals to even better position ARES! 

1.      ALL ARES MEMBERS will need to complete FEMA 100, 200, 700, 800 by the end of July, 2016. Without those certificates, you will still be welcomed to participate in public service events, but only those with certification will be eligible to perform during actual emergencies in EOC’s and on scenes.

2.      In efforts to step up training, two programs will launch:  first a “Train the EC” program for EC’s, AEC’s, DEC’s and ADEC’s  which will come to a district near you! This daylong course will help direct the ARES leadership team to provide a better environment for our members. Second, a district-wide open training day for all members. This will be interesting and challenging- and will promote ARES members to perform as even more valuable volunteers!

3.      Our NVIS antenna day will again test our ability to communicate

4.      The April Spring Conference (Date and place TBA) will bring even more good information- we hope to follow our process of improving two meter and 440 communications with antenna examples and other information. We will give you information on a wide variety of topics to take back to your group!”

For those who asked about weather spotting information during the Sunday night Miami County Amateur Radio Net, please use the following link to take you to the National Weather Service website for Skywarn:

http://www.weather.gov/iln/skywarn

The following link will take you to information on Skywarn and training material where you can download the training material and Weather Spotter Reference Guide: http://www.nws.noaa.gov/training/wxspot.php.

Currently I do not see a link to an on-line training course, if and when I find one, I will pass this information along to the team.

 

Miami County Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES) & Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) Groups are two organizations which allow amateur radio operators to use their communications skills to assist the county and surrounding counties in times of emergencies.  The two groups play different roles in regards to emergency communications.  RACES is the government arm of amateur radio emergency services and ARES is the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) arm of the amateur radio services.

RACES provides emergency communication working through the Emergency Management Agency (EMA) in Miami County.  The group currently consists of a radio office, an assistant radio office, a training officer and 13 general members.  The group works under the direction of the Miami County EMA Director.  They are activated whenever there is a need for additional communications or backup communications during an emergency event in the county.  These types of events can range from hazardous materials incident, weather related incident, or police/fire incident.  Their service begins after an emergency event has started and is normally shut down shortly after the emergency has cleared.

ARES provides emergency communication working through the ARRL.  The group consists of an emergency coordinator(EC), an assist emergency coordinator(AEC), 26 active registered members, and 8 reserve registered members in Miami County.  ARES is activated before, during, and after an emergency.  Generally, ARES handles all emergency messages, including those between government emergency management officials.  ARES may participate in many types of emergency situations.  They activate mostly during times of severe weather to help weather spotting and communications in the event of a natural disaster that happens because of severe weather.  An ARES radio net can be started by any ARES member before or during an emergency.  The starting of the radio net is considered the activation of the group.
