What does it take to become a part of the team?

Time Commitment:

When not activated, Washington County ARES holds one communications net per week. The net lasts approximately 30 minutes. We also meet once per month and spend approximately 1-2 hours on training.

Training Requirements:

Working with public safety and disaster response organizations requires us to use a common framework with them. We use the FEMA ICS/NIMS protocols to unify our efforts with our served agencies. A few hours of study will bring you up to speed on the ICS/NIMS system.

Required Equipment:

A valid amateur radio license is all that is required to join. We primarily operate on the 2m and 70cm amateur radio bands using voice and digital modes. There are no minimum equipment requirements to join.
