Nice! You can also see lightning on Foreflight, along with the rain and storms and more. As a FRO as well as MP, the tools we have now for near real time data are incredible.

Each Activity Director selects their own staff, so every event is a little different.  I would suggest trying to find out their email address after applying and then send a short note of why you want to staff the event and mention any specific skills you have than can contribute to the event.

One of the requirements:

"Develop and implement an annual emergency services training plan."

Maybe I'm overlooking something simple and obvious, but not sure what they are asking for here. This is the only thing I'm lacking.
Your annual ES traiing plan is just the basic long term planning to meet your ES needs.

You start with identifing your ES needs......We need to have 8 GTMs, 2 GTLs, 3 MSL, 1 CUL, 4 MRO, etc and so forth.

Now you see what your currently got.
Then you check to see how much attrition you get....."We loose 50% per year"

So your training plan should focus first on your immediate short falls.
Then the plan should focus on staying in front of your attrition.   Half of your GTMS disappear each year you need to make sure you are holding enough GTM courses.
Finally the plan should also include currency training/events.

Now....here's the fun part.  You don't have to do all of this yourself.

Your wing should also have an annual training plan.   That would help cover your currency training needs...and you would only have to do training that wing does not provide.
Also...if you have other nearby squadrons.....cross deck with their ESO's to see if there is any way you can share the load.   Say you are doing quarterly GT training....Squadron X can do it first and third quarter and Squadron Y does it 2nd and 4th quarter.

Remember the whole point of the training plan is to make sure you have enough trained ES personnel to meet your ES needs/taskings.   So that is your first and most important task right now.   You will definitely need to coordinate with wing/group ES to find out what your squadron's share of that burden is.

Good Luck

Good info, that really helps.  Yes, our Wing provides great training at SAREXs multiple times per year. But folks are not always able to go. Hence my mentioning above wanting to hold class for a couple folks interested in AP.

Yes, I'll print out some Qualifications reports and see what we have and what we need. Thanks!

Yet this still happens...

Removed to protect the innocent.  Video was of cadets screaming at other cadets.

Fast forward to :50

Not only did it happen, it was filmed and uploaded by a senior member who apparently thought nothing of it.

What about for seniors looking to staff NCSAs?  Is there a similar selection/slotting process or is it based on mere availability?

Is every cadet attending one possible based on applicants vs availability?  I donít have the numbers but Iím guessing only a third or so actually get selected.

NHQ's priority is to try to get every cadet to at least one NCSA, if they have applied.  This is why the priorities in your application matters.  If you have a program that isn't as competitive as PJOC or NBB first, you'll likely get your first choice, but then you go down to bottom of the list for a second round, and by then, the highly competitive activities' slots are filled. 

Also, if you get slotted for an event, the system will remove you from any other NCSAs that have a date conflict.  So if you later decline your slot to that activity, you'll need to add the other activities back in.

I should add, the take away is that there are several thousand cadets applying for 1200 or so spots nationwide.  So think carefully about what order you list your preferences in e-services. Also, if you really want to attend a particular NCSA keep those dates available. My son got alternate for NBB but was called the day before to attend.  Unfortunately he had already made alternate plans and wasnít able to go.

On a side note my daughter said the space command course was the best activity sheís attended so far.  They were also able to see a SpaceX launch so that was just icing on the cake.

Iíve found that your chances of getting accepted to multiple NCSAís is low.  For instance, if you get into one, it drops you down the list for number two.  My daughter was accepted to AFSCFC and was being considered as an alternate for JFA. But when they saw she was attending AFSCFC, she was no longer considered for JFA.
