York County ARES has been notified of a partial EMA activation. This does not mean ARES has been or will be activated, however stations should consider this a level 1 (alert) status and prepare accordingly. Any stations that are available to staff positions in the event of a full activation please contact me by email. If EMA notifies me of the need for ARES members, we will move to a level 2 or 3 activation and a directed net will be brought up. I will coordinate with EMA officials to provide staffing for the radio room.
Again, this is not a full ARES activation, we are only at Level 1 Alert, now is the time to prepare. Updates will be forthcoming.
