The Amateur Radio Emergency Service® (ARES) consists of licensed Amateur Radio operators who voluntarily registered their qualifications and equipment with local ARES leadership for public service communications duty when disaster strikes. The ARRL set in motion a new ARES strategic plan to improve collaboration with government and human services agencies and streamline community disaster response.
The LARC May club meeting presentation, “Intro to ARES,” will give a history of ARES and outline what you can do as a volunteer. We’ll also give the “nuts and bolts” of the organization. James Nelson, WØJRN, Southeast Nebraska District Emergency Coordinator (SE NE DEC), and Ed Holloway, KØRPT, Nebraska Section Emergency Coordinator (NE SEC), will tag-team this presentation. Please plan to attend this online presentation on Wednesday, May 13, at 7:30 pm via www.neares.net/larcmeeting.
