Islip ARES Emegency Plan
Introduction
The Town of Islip Amateur Radio Emergency Services, herein called Islip ARES Group for brevity, is comprised of FCC-licensed amateur radio operators who have voluntarily registered their capabilities and equipment for the purpose of Public Service communications. These individuals are registered with the American Radio Relay League's Amateur Radio Emergency Service, they may also be registered with the SCEMO as RACES volunteers.

a. Scope of Plan
The Islip ARES Group provides emergency communications, and can provide adjunct communications should conditions require. Our operational area is the Town of Islip, however we are available where needed as so activated and authorized.

b. Purpose
The plan is designed to provide a basic outline of the resources and operations of the Islip ARES Group.

Authority
Under FCC Rules and Regulations, Part 97 subpart A specific authority is given for emergency communications on frequencies designated by the FCC. By Resolution of the Islip Town Board, Islip ARES is authorized to provide emergency communications, and utilize town facilities under direction of the Director of Emergency Management.

Activation
  1. The following individuals and agencies have authority to activate Islip ARES and mobilize personnel and resources:
    1. Radio Officer - Town of Islip (EC)
    2. Suffolk County Emergency Management Office (SCEMO) 
    3. State and Federal officials through the SCEMO Town of Islip - 
    4. Director of Emergency Management Town of Islip
    5. Deputy Director of Emergency Management
    6. In the absence of above officials, their successors or designates.
  2. The following agencies may activate Islip ARES through the above officials:
    1.  Adjoining Townships
    2.  American Red Cross 
    3. Hospitals 
    4. Salvation Army
    5. Suffolk County Fire, Rescue and Emergency Services (SCFRES) 
    6. Suffolk County Police Department (SCPD) 
    7. Any other agency requiring communications assistance when deemed appropriate by above listed officials
Activation Procedures
  1. Any member who for any reason suspects that a communications emergency exists, or suspects that an adjunct communications need exists should monitor the assigned net frequency for activity.
  2. Members monitoring the repeater may be alerted by activation of an Emergency Group Call.
  3. Members may be alerted by telephone call-up. (telephone tree)
  4. Members may be alerted by listening to announcements from an Emergency Broadcast Station.
Mobilization
Upon awareness that an emergency exists members of Islip ARES shall check-in to the Islip ARES Emergency Net and await instructions. The EC or his designate will become the Net Control Station (NCS). The EC or designate will advise which EOC staff to attend the EOC. The net shall be operated from the Islip ARES Emergency Operations Center (EOC) located at Islip Town Hall. Should the NCS be activated prior to arrival at the EOC, the EC or designate will assign NCS responsibilities until the EOC is staffed. If circumstances do not allow net operations to be conducted at the EOC, specific authority may be granted by the EC to conduct operations elsewhere. The NCS will be the focal point of operations, unless sub-nets are authorized by the EC. The EC or designate will assign specific duties to members as required by prevailing circumstances. The EC or designate will request assistance from outside agencies or town departments as required by prevailing circumstances, and as authorized. All requests for Mutual Aid will be coordinated with SCEMO and Town staff to prevent incorrect assignment. The EC or designate will request assistance from non-member, licensed amateur radio operators within his jurisdiction if the appropriate officials so approves. Liaison Stations that have been previously assigned permanent duties as "Official Emergency Stations" will be dispatched to their tasks as required. Any additional required liaisons to nets or agencies will be assigned as required. Additional radio operators that are assigned to handle radio communications will be designated as an "Official Emergency Station" for the duration of their participation.
