You want to help as an Amateur Radio operator in an emergency. That's great. Sometimes that help is needed, sometimes not. Here's a typical comparison:
Obviously, there can be exceptions. An example is #9 above. A hermit, skilled in other areas, might be an excellent remote relay station operator if there are no others with whom he might have difficulty with at his location.

CA State OES began the Bulletins in the early 1950's to assist agencies and radio operators to become more familiar with RACES. They were issued periodically until 1985, at which time they began to be issued weekly over voice and digital radio systems of Amateur Radio and in print. Originally intended for California, increased demand, and a 1988 request by the ARRL for national distribution, led to their eventual worldwide distribution.
