The Amateur Radio Emergency Service(R) (ARES)(R)
Amateur Radio Operators use their training, skills, and equipment to provide communications during emergencies When All Else Fails(R). The ARRL Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) consists of radio 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 is an ARRL program, offering to the public and its partners trained, federally licensed operators who are skilled in applying a wide range of effective emergency/disaster communications techniques and who are committed to supporting our partners’ missions in service to the public.
ARRL’s volunteer amateur radio operators help their communities in both good times and bad through community events, disaster response, and various programs. In Mississippi, the ARES program is overseen by the Section, District, and County Emergency Coordinators. To learn more about ARES visit arrl.org/ares.
