Providing service to others (e.g. Public Service communication support) requires adaptation to the evolving needs of those being served.
In his Positioning ARES for Serving in Todays World article (a free preview from the September 2018 issue of QST Magazine), ARRL Communication Manager David Isgur, N1RSN, writes:
With the advent of more uniformly functioning public safety organizations across the nation, more requirements imposed upon agencies and organizations assisting them, and the development of the Incident Command System (ICS) and the National Incident Management System (NIMS), ARRL was challenged to align the standards of ARES with current needs of our served partner agencies.
