Emergency Communications

Emergency communications ("EMCOMM") is a service that hams provide in times of disaster. When a hurricane, earthquake, flood, fire or any other type of disaster strikes, amateur radio is often the only means of communication available to the outside world - or within the area affected.

Many CARA hams participate in emergency communications in the Candlewood Lake area, taking part in ARES/RACES training sessions, nets, and meetings, and occasionally serving in an emergency situation in the area.
