The Amateur Radio Emergency Service® (ARES) consists of licensed amateur radio operators who have voluntarily registered their qualifications and equipment with their local ARES leadership, for communications duty in the public service when disaster strikes.
Geauga County ARES is available to assist the County during emergencies, drills, and other times of need. We also provide volunteer communications for public service events.
Because we are volunteers, we are not officially affiliated with law enforcement or other government agencies. We are not first responders, and we do not self-deploy. We are able to assist law enforcement and other public service agencies when requested.
Volunteers must be licensed amateur radio operators, and need not be affiliated with a club or the ARRL.
