Every licensed amateur regardless of membership in ARRL or any other local or national organization, is eligible for membership in ARES®. The only qualification, other than possession of an Amateur Radio license, is a sincere desire to serve. Because ARES® is an amateur radio service, only FCC licensed amateurs are eligible for membership. At the local level our primary task has been to provide emergency communications. Our training is focused on disaster preparedness and public service
