ARES is a group of Amateur Radio Operators, who volunteer their time, training and equipment, to provide communications in their communities when disaster strikes.  ARES members work with Serviced Agencies to provide communications when the served agency systems become overloaded, disabled and/or auxiliary systems are needed.  Colorado ARES Region 1, District 1 (R1D1)  has numerous Served Agencies.  This page will soon have links and information about those agencies and how service has, is and will be provided.  These pages should include capabilities required at site and some information for the teams that are assigned to these agencies.
