Amateur Radio Emergency Services


The Mississauga Amateur Radio Club actively promotes and encourages the Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES). ARES members are involved in many Club activities and are engaged in the set-up and planning of an emergency preparedness infrastructure and the training of our members in emergency planning and operations.

The Mississauga Amateur Radio Club has put together a Field Services Vehicle that can act as an on-site communications control centre for disaster operations and also to co-ordinate communications during our many public service activities. Click Here to see the FSV.

The primary served agency of Mississauga ARES is the Canadian Red Cross and in particular the Ontario Zone (OZONE) Red Cross office. In addition, we support the City of Mississauga as well as the Region of Peel (in collaboration with Peel ARES group).

To be a member of Mississauga ARES you need to have your amateur radio license and a desire to provide needed assistance in case of emergency. You do not need to be a member of the Mississauga Amateur Radio Club or Radio Amateurs of Canada, however doing so helps to strengthen our hobby and maintain our operating privileges.
