ARES and Emergency Work
Getting the Message Through
There are three main campaigns that ARRL has produced to promote Amateur Radio.
This one is about EmComm - emergency communications and the critical role that Amateur Radio continues to play in providing support to many response organizations.
Amateur Radio operators are often the people behind the scenes who make the "heroes" look good. Without reliable communications as provided by ARES and other ham organizations, emergencies quickly can turn into total disasters.
This is an excellent presentation for young adults, political groups and those whose interests lie in the emergency response areas.
The EmComm presentation has several files in a suite which are intended to stay together. Audio, video, PowerPoint, pictures and even a script you can modify for your local uses - everything to make a first class presentation.
We highly recommend you also contact the ARRL and request the brochures which accompany this campaign. Go see the brochures.
There's also a special website to go with this presentation. Go to:
