In the event of a served agency requested activation we will follow the activation protocol.
If a station suspects that a situation may be developing that could require ARES activation, come up in standby mode on our pre-designated frequencies.
If it is determined that there is no current NCS, assume that roll. When a more experienced and available station checks in, you may defer NCS responsibility to them.
Ideally, NCS should be able to communicate with served agencies either via land-line, linked system, HF or packet.
If an actual event occurs, transition from informal net to directed net operation.
If operators are needed from outside the area, these will be potential staging areas. California: Locations on Hwy 50, West of 87
