Roles

  • Emergency Coordinator
    • The ARRL Emergency Coordinator is the person responsible for the ARES group at the local level. Working with local community officials, the Section Emergency Coordinator (SEC), and other field appointees, the EC leads his or her local ARES group through the planning, preparedness, and response phases.
  • Assistant Emergency Coordinator
    • AECs are selected and appointed by the EC. Each EC may have as many AECs as required to effectively manage the ARES unit. Possible duties of an AEC will be discussed in the following chapter. The AEC is strictly a local appointment, sometimes made on an ad hoc basis, and, consequently, does not require ARRL membership or SM/SEC approval, or notification to ARRL HQ.
