The Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) is a nationally organized group of over 35,000 federally licensed amateur radio operators who have voluntarily registered their services and formed an organized pool of operators to provide reliable primary and secondary communications links for governmental agencies and/or non-profit organizations when needed.
Local ARES groups participate under the "umbrella" of the national ARES organization which is administered as part of the American Radio Relay League, the National Organization for Amateur Radio.
Locally the Washington County ARES group partners with government and non-government disaster response agencies Washington County, Utah to provide communications capabilities when existing capabilities are overwhelmed or incapacitated.
We strongly encourage you to join and remain a member of the American Radio Relay League, Inc. (ARRL) "The National Organization for Amateur Radio". Our Club is an ARRL Affiliated Club!
