    If we amateurs want to remain relevant in an emergency, the watchword is "training". Without a clear understanding of who is in charge and what they expect of their subordinates, hams won't be very welcome when the time comes to serve. There are already county and district EMAs who say "thanks but no thanks" to "ARES" groups and other independent hams who want to help. The best thing we can arm ourselves with besides our go-box and twinkies .... is training .... things like the ICS courses FEMA offers for free .... the weather spotting courses .... and the list goes on. The better trained we are, the less likely we'll hear "thanks but no thanks" from actual Emergency Managers.
