All active ARES members need to complete three online FEMA training courses. Knowing and understanding how to work with governmental agencies at ALL levels will make the difference between helping and being in the way.
Please visit the Emergency Communications Training page for details.

Thank you very much to the City of Warsaw, MO for linking us on their website. We are hoping to reach more Amateur Radio operators or future/potential amateur radio operators with this new network!
In the future, we will release news about upcoming Benton County ARES meetings, testing, activation and more through the website’s news flash.

Effective immediately, both the Benton and St. Clair county ARES nets will be held once a month. Benton County ARES will be at 7pm on the first Sunday of the month. St Clair County ARES will be at 7pm on the first Monday of the month.
We’ll try this for the busy summer months, and re-evaluate this fall.
We could really use some volunteers to call the net. It’s not tough and it’s great experience.
