The plan is to go over the EC-001 Introduction to Emergency Communications training course, which is an optional course for Level 1 ARES members, and a requirement for Level 2, along with ICS-100, ICS-200, ICS-700 and ICS-800. Level 2 is considered to be the minimum level to be able to be deployed with ARES for an emergency.
