Ama­teur Radio Emer­gency Ser­vice® (ARES) ares logo


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.


ARES Mem­ber­ship Require­ments


Every licensed ama­teur, regard­less of mem­ber­ship in ARRL or any oth­er local or nation­al orga­ni­za­tion is eli­gi­ble to apply for mem­ber­ship in ARES. Train­ing may be required or desired to par­tic­i­pate ful­ly in ARES. Please inquire at the local lev­el for spe­cif­ic infor­ma­tion. Because ARES is an Ama­teur Radio pro­gram, only licensed radio ama­teurs are eli­gi­ble for mem­ber­ship. The pos­ses­sion of emer­gency-pow­ered equip­ment is desir­able, but is not a require­ment for mem­ber­ship.
