Part 97 of the FCC Rules for Amateur Radio state that the first of five basic principles on the basis and purpose of amateur radio is, "Recognition and enhancement of the value of the amateur service to the public as a voluntary, noncommercial communication service, particularly with respect to providing emergency communications [97.1(a)]"
Accordingly, in conjunction with the Yavapai Amateur Radio Club and the Verde Valley Amateur Radio Club, members participate on a regular basis in communication support to various activities in Yavapai County. Support of these activities provides good training for the time when ARES/RACES is needed in times of actual emergencies. Some of these events are:
March of Dimes Walk
In addition to the public service events listed above, the primary focus of ARES/RACES is supporting our served agencies. These include:
All Cities and Towns in Yavapai County
American Red Cross
US Forest Service Fire Center
Yavapai County Community Health Services
Yavapai County Office of Emergency Management
