More about us...

The Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) consists of licensed amateurs who have voluntarily registered their qualifications and equipment for communications duty in the public service when disaster strikes.

Every licensed amateur, regardless of membership in ARRL or any other local or national organization, is eligible to apply for membership in ARES. Training may be required or desired to participate fully in ARES. Please inquire at the local level for specific information.

Because ARES is an Amateur Radio service, only licensed radio amateurs are eligible for membership.

The possession of emergency-powered equipment is desirable, but is not a requirement for membership (copied from the ARRL Website http://www.arrl.org/ares)
