Emergency Management - Radio

A destructive disaster, such as an earthquake, may disrupt, overload, or extensively damage normal communications systems. Emergency communications systems will be utilized in a disaster to disseminate instructions to the public for the protection of lives and property and provide a path for the exchange of critical information between decision-making officials for the coordination of local, state and federal disaster response and recovery actions. Two amateur radio organizations that provide volunteer radio operators in time of emergency are RACES and ARES .
