p>RAC Bulletin 2009-011E : Renewed Memorandum of Understanding between RAC and Canadian Red Cross Society
April 1, 2009

A renewed Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the Radio Amateurs of Canada Inc. and the Canadian Red Cross Society. Replacing the original 1994 agreement, the MOU updates details and clarifies the role played by Amateur Radio and in particular the RAC Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) in time of disaster or other events requiring emergency communications.

The MOU may be viewed in both official languages at http://www.rac.ca/fieldorg/download.htm under the heading "ARES Documents".

All Radio Amateurs involved with emergency communications should become familiar with the document in order to facilitate cooperation between the two signing organizations.</p>
