Personnel

People are the most important assets of any organization, particularly those of volunteer public service units. ARES-RACES volunteers are dedicated, well-trained and knowledgeable individuals whose skills and professionalism are widely recognized by government agencies at all levels. During Hurricane Katrina, a congressional investigating committee concluded that the Amateur Radio response to the gulf coast disaster was the only thing that worked right.

Training and drilling are paramount to the effectiveness and readiness of all ARES-RACES units. Personnel assigned to response teams are required to complete training courses on emergency management protocols and procedures offered by FEMA. ARES-RACES personnel are also required to successfully complete courses on basic emergency communications offered through the ARRL. Additional training is conducted at the unit level through drills, exercises, seminars and participation in public service activities.

Leadership of Delaware County ARES-RACES

Delaware County ARES-RACES is part of the First District of the Eastern Pennsylvania Section of the ARRL Field Organization.
