Mission Statement

Provides amateur radio emergency communications resources to served agencies: county and city governments, school districts, water districts, hospitals, and utilities.

Description

Washington County Amateur Radio Corporation purchases and solicits donated resources to support emergency communications during disasters. It's members are licensed amateur radio operators who train with local government agencies to support them during disasters, when telephone, internet and public safety radio systems may be overwhelmed or inoperative. We currently have about 80 licensed amateur radio operators, and we welcome new members.

Modes of communications support include sending voice, text, and pictures over the radio to support emergency responders during a disaster. Operations are conducted from a mixture of agency-owned, pre-installed equipment and personal mobile and portable equipment.

There are also support opportunities for volunteers who are not licensed amateur radio operators, serving as recorders, operations managers, or liaisons to served agencies.
