Hello to all….
Manager of Preparedness and Response at ARRL HQ, Dennis Dura-K2DCD, noted a relatively new FEMA Online Independent Study Course on Emergency Support Function (ESF) #2 online class on communications. See info from Dennis below:
Many of you may already be aware of this course, or have taken it. Nevertheless, here is information on a relatively new FEMA online independent study course that presents the concepts of Emergency Support Function #2-Communications. For those that have heard my presentations around the country, I strongly encourage integrating ARES in the local, county, regional or state government emergency operations plan. This presents us a variety of mission options, not beholding to any one specific group, and we become more aligned with the emergency management structure.
The course will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. Please distribute this information as appropriate within your Section.
