Georgia Section ARES Emergency Response Plan

Defining the Need


Identifying Potential Communications Problems

The first step in good planning is to define the problem. In emergency communications planning, this is best done in three steps:

  1. List all of the possible disasters that could occur in your area, and assign each a level of probability.
  2. Assess how each of these disasters would impact the community and its communication infrastructure.
  3. Evaluate the resources your community already has to meet a communication emergency (our "served agencies").
