Emergency Coordinator

The ARES organization consists of an Emergency Coordinator who is selected and approved by the State Emergency Coordinator. The responsibility is to organize member stations, provide for avenues of training of those members and oversee the deployment of those members as required by “Served Agencies”. 

Assistant Emergency Coordinators

Assistant Emergency Coordinators do exactly what their title infers. They assist the Emergency Coordinator in planning, executing those plans, establish policies and procedures, establish training procedures, methods and guidelines to promote excellence in the ranks of the volunteer ARES members. In the absence of the Emergency Coordinator, as directed an AEC will be appointed to act on behalf of the Emergency Coordinator in directing operations and facilitating “Served Agency” needs for communications in his absence.

The responsibilities are divided into 5 categories:

District- Backs up the Emergency Coordinator if he is unavailable for any reason.

 Team Members

Team members are solicited, recruited, or may volunteer for primary responsibility as a team member. They often have specialized skills, interests, or other qualities that lead them to become a member of a given team. They are a team member because they want to work with others, provide a level of excellence in their missions, and to promote unity within the organization known as ARES. They may also be assigned to other missions within ARES when their team has not been or is not expected to be activated due to overall mission requirements.

 

Members At Large

Members at large are members who have registered their capabilities, agreed to be involved with basic training, both within the ICS structure and the E-Com training criteria, and are dedicated to service to the community.  They, as all members in ARES, will be encouraged to take advantage of weekly net training and regular face to face training opportunities. They can be assigned to any of the teams or a given duties not necessarily covered by any of the teams or organized units within ARES. Those duties might include subject matter expert, rover positions, relief, or any variety of missions necessary to complete the overall mission.
