12. New ARES 3 level Responder System

Earlier this month Ohio Section ARES leadership revised their responder structure.  After going to a two tier system last year, the Section leadership is restructuring to establish a three level responder system.

Level One will consist of all Ohio ARES members who have not completed and submitted certificates to Ohio ARES all four Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Emergency Management Institute (EMI) Independent Study Courses IS-100, 200, 700 and 800.

Level Two will include those members who have completed and submitted all four certificates noted above to Ohio ARES leadership.

Level Three Ohio ARES members must also complete and submit certificates for intermediate and advanced courses ICS-300 and 400, which are only available in classroom versions.
