The Emergency Plan is being updated.

The purpose of this document is to provide general guidelines and an organizational framework in support of Emergency Communications within the ARRL Tennessee Section while leaving the specific details for each District and County Emergency Communications plans to be developed at those respective levels.

The Plan describes an organization within which District and County amateur radio units may function with maximum effectiveness and minimum confusion. It is intended to promote uniform procedures among Local, District and West, Middle and East Division amateur radio units, their officials and their operators.

These guidelines are not intended as rigid regulations. The appointed Emergency Coordinator (EC) in each county may interpret and adapt the plan as reasonably necessary for efficient and effective management of their local situation.
