Amateur or “HAM” radio has proven to be indispensable in the aftermath of hurricanes 
Harvey, Irma, Katrina, Michael and Maria. Historically, amateur radio has been a 
valuable resource in the Response and Recovery phases of many disasters, providing 
expedient communications when standard public safety and commercial telecommunication
infrastructure has been severely impacted or completely overwhelmed. This webinar 
will discuss the Amateur Radio Relay League (ARRL) and ARES® (Amateur Radio Emergency Service) and how these volunteers can assist emergency managers before, during and 
after disasters. 

Who should attend? Whole community with a particular emphasis on Local, State, and 
Federal Emergency Managers, CERT Program Leaders, Health Departments, and NGO’s.
