The Amateur Radio Emergency Service
(ARES) consists of licensed amateurs who have
voluntarily registered their
qualifications and equipment for communications duty in the public service when disaster
strikes. Every licensed amateur, regardless of membership in ARRL or any other local or
national organization, is eligible for membership in the ARES. The only qualification,
other than possession of an Amateur Radio license, is a sincere desire to serve. Because
ARES is an amateur service, only amateurs are eligible for membership. The possession of
emergency-powered equipment is desirable, but is not a requirement for membership.
