Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES)

In our Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) role, PCACS provide effective temporary non-government communications links for agencies providing for the public welfare. This occurs when existing communication links become damaged or over-loaded due to disasters, emergencies, or other unusual events. Where no existing communications channels exist, ARES will create and maintain them until permanent facilities can be established. When Pinellas County activates the Auxiliary Communications Service (ACS), some ARES ongoing operations may come under ACS command and control.
