GAARES MISSION

image41

A primary responsibility of the Amateur Radio Service, as established by Part 97 of the Federal Communications Commission's regulations, is the performance of public service communications for the general public, particularly in times of emergency when normal communications are not available. To that end, the Georgia Section Amateur Radio Emergency Service members, under the oversight of the American Radio Relay League, will equip themselves and train to provide communications as a direct service to the general public through government and relief agencies located in Georgia, local government jurisdictions, the State of Georgia, and Federal Agencies when requested by those agencies.
