Lee County Amateur Radio Emergency Services (Lee CARES) is actively working to bring amateur radio back-up communications to Lee County first responders, served agencies and our community. Amateur Radio Emergency Service® (ARES) consists of licensed amateurs who voluntarily registered their qualifications and equipment, with their local ARES leadership, for communications skills for the public when disaster strikes. Simply put “When Comms Go Down, We Step Up“.
To better prepare for an emergency back-up radio situation we are working several projects that will enable us to better serve Lee County and our communities. To learn more about each project please click on the link below.
