The Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) is a voluntary organization of licensed radio amateurs who have registered their capabilities and equipment for providing emergency communications as a public service to the community. The purpose of ARES is to furnish communications the event of a natural disaster when regular communications fail or are inadequate, Sponsored by Radio Amateurs of Canada, ARES functions at the local level to meet local communications needs. ARES has a long history of public service going back to its formal inception in 1935. Since that time, ARES has responded countless times to communications emergencies. Experience has proven that radio amateurs respond more capably in emergencies when practice has been conducted in an organized group. There is no substitute for experience gained before the need arises. ARES in each locality operates under the direction of the Emergency Coordinator (EC), whose function is to direct the activities of the ARES group and to maintain a state of readiness.

 

To register with ARES, send or give this completed form directly to your local EC or mail to RAC Headquarters, 217-720 Belfast Rd., Ottawa, ON K1G 0Z5. Membership in RAC is desirable but not required for registration. Registration does not require ownership of any special equipment. All amateurs can be of assistance to ARES. There is a provision for every amateur regardless of qualifications held, equipment owned, or personal circumstances. Won't you join us in providing this essential Amateur Radio service?
