The Amateur Radio Emergency ServiceĀ® (ARES) consists of licensed amateurs who volunteer to support the community in Medina County. Persons affiliated with ARES have registered their qualifications and equipment with the local ARES leadership, for communications duty in the public service.

ARES is a program within the American Radio Relay League. Participation in ARES does not require an ARRL membership, or require any membership in any other local or nationwide organization. Some training is required to participate fully in Medina County ARES. Please check the training page for links to online courses. ARES is an Amateur Radio program, therefore only licensed radio amateurs are eligible for membership. The possession of emergency-powered equipment is desirable, but is not a requirement for membership.

Medina County ARES primarily serves the Medina County Office of Emergency Management and Homeland Security. Additionally, Medina County ARES volunteers communications support for other organizations throughout the year for a variety of public service events.
