Amateur Radio Emergency Emergency Service (ARES)
ARES TTARL is a group of public service-minded amateur radio operators interested in providing reliable and coordinated public service and emergency communications to our local communities in Trinidad and Tobago and promoting a positive public image of the Amateur Radio Service through professional conduct and radio operating practices.
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.
ARES TTARL serves state agencies and other surrounding agencies and communities by providing emergency communications assistance; furthering the exchange of information and cooperation between members; promoting radio knowledge, fraternalism and individual operating efficiency and conducting programs and activities to advance the general interest and welfare of Amateur Radio in the community.
