Clark County ARES/RACES is a group of licensed ham radio operators who have volunteered to provide emergency and disaster communications support to our community.  Members develop and maintain emergency communications skills via ongoing training and regular participation in drills and exercises.  More information can be found at this link.

Position Descriptions and Policies:  The process of updating several sections of the Clark County ARES/RACES Resource Guide is now complete.  Some formatting and indexing work still needs to be done, but they have been released and can be viewed here:
  •  Position Descriptions and Training Opportunities
  •  Policy - Member Participation and Retention

How will you get there?  Bridges and overpasses may not survive a major earthquake.  See the interactive Washington State Bridge Resiliency Assessment map to view the bridges and overpasses in your area.  The “Layer List” (upper right corner) lets you select potential damage or how long it will take to reopen.

Notice:  Until COVID-19 meeting restrictions are lifted, all General Meetings will be virtual on either Free Conference Call or Zoom.  Contact your Team Leader or the EC for the URL.
