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 telecommunications 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.
