Who / What is Pender County ARES?

Serving the Citizens of Pender County

Pender County Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES), seeks to assist the citizens of Pender County through partnerships with Pender County Emergency Management, local amateur radio clubs, as well as other ARES organizations throughout the region and state.

We are actively seeking volunteers who wish to join our ARES Team.  You do not need to be a member of the American Radio Relay Leaugue (ARRL), nor do you have to be a current amateur radio operator to join the team.

We strive to provide communications at various public service events, communications to evacuation shelters, redundant communications to the county, as well as providing local condition reports during natural and man made disasters.

We encourage and urge you to become involved and join us in becoming an active part of our community.
