Welcome to Clackamas County Amateur Radio Emergency Services (CARES)


Our Vision

To continually evolve into highly skilled amateur radio operators who, as a group, are recognized as an effective and reliable organization that is capable of providing multi-mode communications for served agencies during emergencies and disasters

Our Mission

For a limited period of time, we will: establish radio communication systems, staffed by licensed amateur radio operators, to replace existing damaged, disrupted, or saturated systems, or to establish radio communications where no system previously existed, on relatively short notice, at no cost to served agencies, until we are authorized to demobilize.
