 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. 

 Amateur Radio (ham radio) is a popular  hobby and service that brings people,  electronics and communication  together. People use ham radio to talk  across town, around the world, or even  into space, all without the Internet or  cell phones. It's fun, social, educational,  and can be a lifeline during times of  need.

  NWS encourages anyone with an    interest in public service and access to  communication, such HAM radio, to  join the SKYWARN® program.  Volunteers include police and fire  personnel, dispatchers, EMS workers,  public utility workers and other  concerned private citizens. Individuals  affiliated with hospitals, schools,  churches, nursing homes or who have  a responsibility for protecting others  are also encouraged to become a  spotter.
