Polk County Amateur Radio Emergency Services, or ARES, is a group of Amateur Radio operators who have registered and volunteered their services to the community. Their services become invaluable in times of emergencies, such as Hurricanes, or other natural or man-made disasters. When disaster strikes and other communication services fail, ARES members are standing by to assist.

ARES members work closely with the Polk County Chapter of the American Red Cross, National Weather Service, and local government. ARES members provide communications at bike rides, walk-a-thons, and parades.  If your public service event needs communications, contact us.
