Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (R.A.C.E.S.)

Authorized by Part 97.407 of the FCC Rules and Regulations, is a volunteer organization of licensed amateur radio operators who donate time, skills, and use of personal equipment for public service. A communications system is an integral component of an emergency operation. Amateur radio plays a vital role in emergency communications during disasters. It is, therefore, essential for an amateur radio communications system to exist that can support and back up the needs of disaster services. Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service is organized under FEMA and operates according to Federal Communications Commission (FCC) rules.
