About A R E S

ARES is the Amateur Radio Emergency Service, the field arm of the American Radio Relay League. 


Our special focus is the use of Amateur Radio for emergency communications, and the recruiting and training of a pool of skilled radio operators to be available in times of emergency.


ARES in Connecticut supports requests for auxiliary communications from state and municipal governments, public health entities, and non-profit providers such as the Red Cross and Salvation Army.  


For a  detailed list of training available, see the training page of the state ARES web site, CTARES.ORG.


IMPORTANT!  Whenever there is an ARES activation, leadership will notify and assign tasks ONLY to those who have current records in the ARES member database.  Go to and update your record now!
