Q – I would like to form an ARES emergency radio group. What do I need to get started?
A – Contact the Section Manager (SM) in your RAC Section for information.
The Section Managers provide regular reports about activities in their area and these are published in the Section News of every issue of The Canadian Amateur Magazine.
Their contact information is available on the Section Managers webpage and is also shown on page 4 of each issue of TCA as shown below.
If the Section Manager is satisfied that you have the ability to properly recruit, organize and manage an ARES group, the SM or the Section Emergency Coordinator (SEC) will appoint you as an Emergency Coordinator (EC). You will then have access to the ARES training and reference material to get the job done right.
Note: CEC = RAC Certified Emergency Coordinator
