Fresno County ARES/RACES Emergency Communications

 

The Fresno County ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Service) and Fresno County RACES (Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Services) organizations have joined forces. Although ARES and RACES are separate entities, our members now can have dual membership and provide greater flexibility during emergencies. Using the same operators and the same frequencies, an ARES group also enrolled in RACES can “switch hats” from ARES to RACES and RACES to ARES to meet the requirements of the situation as it develops. For example, during a “non-declared emergency,” ARES can operate under ARES, but when an emergency or disaster is officially declared by a state or federal authority, the operation can become RACES with no change in personnel or frequencies.

All Fresno County hams are encouraged to participate if they have a desire to serve the community and a willingness to become proficient in emergency communications.
