Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES)
Jump to navigation Jump to search
- Philadelphia ARES consists of licensed amateur radio operators who have voluntarily registered their qualifications and equipment for communications duty in the public interest when disaster strikes and develop a coalition relationship with adjacent county amateur radio ARES for mutual benefit.
Status and Concept:
- Philadelphia County ARES team members are composed of Philadelphia resident and adjacent county licensed Amateur Radio Operators interested in serving the community with their hobby. Phila ARES has interest in forming a membership that has the ability to cross serve Philadelphia and its immediate adjacent counties when such operations are beneficial. Phila ARES, geographically central to the Five Pennsylvania County area and Three New Jersey counties, can be of mutual benefit to volunteer organizations located in these surrounding areas.
