DCARES is an Oregon group of approximately 35 amateur radio operators, who reside in Douglas County and are committed to providing emergency communications to our community in time of need.
The local Roseburg ARES® repeater, 145.470 (-) has a 123 Hz. tone. The ARES® Repeater is a privately owned closed repeater for ARES/Oregon Emergency management Red card holders only.
DCARES serves the Emergency Services Division of the Douglas County Sheriff's Office by providing support to the Search and Rescue (SAR) group. DCARES trains with SAR and has a representative on the SAR council. In addition to our service to the SAR group, we also provide auxiliary communication to the Emergency Management division of the Sheriff's Office. We staffed the EOC during the two recent flood and land slide disaster events in Douglas County. DCARES is a member of the Emergency Management Advisory Group, "EMAG".
