Emergency Activation Classifications

Status Description

Level 1: Normal everyday operations. No emergency or precipitating condition exists.

Level 2: A potential for a communication emergency exists. Members should monitor their local ARES net frequencies and email for information on preparing for deployment, and possible activation notices.
Level 3: An unusual condition or emergency exists that has caused government officials to declare a warning. A communications emergency does not yet exist. Affected ECs will initiate their local ARES net. All members should monitor their local net frequency. Members should make all preparations for possible activation. Members will be asked to check in to their local ARESnets and be prepared to state their availability and resources. A Section Coordination & Traffic Net (SCTN) may be initiated on an appropriate frequency circumstances warrant as determined by the ACO. In the case where the SCTN has not yet been initiated and is clearly needed, any EC or his designee may initiate one. Notification will be made to the ACO and to members of NH-ARES by the best available means informing them that the SCTN has been activated. Local ARES leadership will appoint a liaison to check into the SCTN. ECs and/or liaison stations should then monitor the SCTN.

Level 4: A communication emergency exists and volunteer operators and radio resources have been requested by one or more served agencies. Nets in affected areas should be activated, and if needed, the SCTN, as determined by the ACO. ECs in un-affected areas should monitor the appropriate nets in the event additional assistance is required
