Amateur Radio Emergency Service® (ARES)
The Amateur Radio Emergency Service® (ARES) consists of
licensed amateurs who have voluntarily registered their qualifications
and equipment, with their local ARES leadership, for communications duty
in the public service when disaster strikes.
ARES Membership Requirements
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 program, only licensed radio amateurs are eligible for membership. The possession of emergency-powered equipment is desirable, but is not a requirement for membership.
