ABOUT CLARK COUNTY ARES/RACES

Clark County, Nevada, ARES/RACES is a team of Amateur Radio Operators, licensed by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), who have voluntarily agreed to utilize their skills and sometimes their own equipment for public service communications support to both government and non-government entities. Clark County ARES/RACES is not a club, but rather a team dedicated to serve the public. There are no dues. We hold monthly training sessions.

ARES is activated before, during and after an emergency. Generally, ARES handles all emergency messages, including those between government emergency management officials. RACES, on the other hand, almost never starts before an emergency and is active only during the emergency and during the immediate aftermath if government emergency management offices need communications support. RACES is normally shut down shortly after the emergency has cleared.

Our primary mission is to augment and support vital communications on behalf of the public through partner agencies during emergencies and disasters.  Especially when normal communications fail or become overloaded. Our partner agencies include the Emergency Management offices of Clark County and the Cities of Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Henderson, Boulder City, the Southern Nevada Health District, the Las Vegas Chapter of the American Red Cross and 17 hospitals in Clark County.

To obtain more information about our unit or how to join Clark County ARES/RACES, email the Clark County Emergency Coordinator, Jimmy Gollohan, AA4Z.  Contact information is located on the Contact Us page
