Location reporting

Each member of ARES will be reporting on the state of their location. This provides a qualified condition index of the status of the county. A report may contain numerous reporting vectors such as those listed below

  • Electric status – is power present? Is there noted damage to electrical transmission systems? Are support teams working in the area?

  • Weather status – Storm conditions – rain, hail, lightning or thunder? Wind conditions – direction and velocity? Thunderstorm or Tornado sightings?

  • Road conditions – Traffic issues road blockages
