TRAINING COURSES

One of the best ways to learn a lot about how the Incident Command System works and how we as ARES operators can interface with a major event is the Auxiliary Communications Class known as AUXCOM.   This is an intense two day training that gives you an insight into the planning and execution of an event from small to large.  The lessons learned in this class can be applied if you help cover a public service event or participate in a major emergency.  Each operator will learn how the ICS principles work and how they are applied.

The state of Connecticut is holding another class this year and this is your opportunity to to reserve a seat.  The class will take place on November 16th and 17th, Saturday and Sunday and will be held at the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection office in Middletown.  There is no cost for the class however there is a limit of thirty seats and each applicant must have an amateur license, ICS 100, 200, 700 and 800 as well as being affiliated with a public service organization such as CERT, local fire, ambulance or the local EOC.

If you are interested seating is limited and I anticipate that they will go quickly please let me know as soon as possible.  The state is spending training funds on this class and I want us to take full advantage of it.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks
