Area Operations Guides (AOG)

Ops Guides are intended to amplify on NTP-8 based on special needs and circumstances within your Area, Region or State.  In case of conflict between an Ops Guide and NTP-8, the latter has priority.  Consult your State Four or State Director for guidance.

Each of the NMC MARS Areas has, or should have, an Area Operations Guide (AOG).  It will vary from Area to Area whether or not there are also Region or State ops guides (ROG and SOG respectively).   Additional information may be available on your Area, Region, or State web sites. Click here to check that out.

Every Area, Region, and State should have an ECOM plan that is separate; whether or not they have an Ops Guide. Contact your State Director for further information.  ECOM plans are generally more tactical than operational and therefore are not considered under training materials.  If you believe your ECOM plan conflicts with your Ops Guide or NTP-8, talk with your State Four or State Director about it.
