LARC’s website has been updated to include an ARES web page with contacts, resources, and links to keep radio amateurs better informed. If you are a licensed amateur radio operator and would like get involved with your local ARES group, take a look at the page. http://k5lib.org/ares/
The Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) consists of Amateur Radio licensees 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.
The local ARES Emergency Coordinator can provide specifics. 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.
