  Greetings All 

We're definitely in the hotter summer season. Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico are already battling brushfires; locally Ventura County Fire Department has been sending engines as mutual aid to a fire in Santa Barbara County for the last two weeks. The Santa Anas haven't started up yet, but it's likely to be a long hot summer.

  Upcoming events are:

The Moorpark 3rd of July Fireworks Expo arrival 1445 (2:45 pm) for briefing, gates open to the public at 1545 (3:45 pm) with the event continuing until approx 2300 (11:00 pm). If you can get there by 1445, parking should be available by the command post.

  10 July Bi-Monthly District meeting, hosted this time by
  Area 5 at Ojai Hospital

Below is a list of current FEMA independent study courses, several of which are pertinent to ARES / ACS / RACES operations.

ARES recommended courses are IS-100, IS-200, IS-700 & IS-800. IS-100 & IS-200 cover the basics of the Incident Command System or ICS. IS-700 & IS-800 provide an introduction to NIMS, the National Incident Management System.

We have been using the Incident Command System, or elements of the current ICS organization, in California for more than ten years The ICS concept and system started here in California. NIMS, the National Incident Management System, is essentially ICS writ large for national response incidents and the greater resource management issues involved.

I would also recommend IS-275 The EOC's Role in Community Preparedness, Response and Recovery Activities, IS-288 The Role of Voluntary Agencies in Emergency Management, and IS-317 Introduction to Community Emergency Response Teams. In any disaster we in ARES, with or without County DSW cards will be working with other voluntary groups and agencies, either in parallel or in a client-service relationship.

Course materials are available either online in a hosted web-site format or downloadable as MS Word documents or Adobe PDF files.

Please let AA6VH (aa6vh@arrl.net) know when you complete any of these courses.
