CONDITION GREEN STATUS
Condition GREEN status means that there are no current emergencies and the ARES group continues practicing training for when real emergencies occur.
During this time, as part of our training, we have a weekly net and request all members to serve as the Net Control Operator so that the members can insure that their equipment is in good working order when needed in an emergency and so that they learn proper NCO protocol when they are called upon to take control of an emergency net.
Since Monterey County is heavily in agriculture, GREEN means "GROWTH" and when we have CONDITON GREEN that is a time for training and growth of our skills and capabilities.
GREEN is a time for you to check your GO-KITS and make sure your generators will start when needed and that batteries are fully charged. Think of GREEN as a time of PREPERATION.
