about the ARES organization.


MC-ARES Emergency Pocket Cards


We have a pocket card available with all the important emergency phone numbers and radio frequencies to be used when we are called "into action".  The image at the left shows both the front and back side of the card.  


These are the same size as standard business cards and will easily fit into your wallet or your emergency go kit so you will always have the info available.


If you do not have one of these cards then come to our monthly meetings and we should have them available.


If you would like to download a pdf version of the card click HERE.


Every ARES members must have an ARES vest.


This is not only for safety purposes but also so workers in the affected areas know who you are and what you are doing there.  When another responder is looking for a means of communication this vest provides a quick resource for that individual.  


Be sure to have one of these in your Go Kit.






The ARES hat is a good way to add to your image 

as an Emergency Communicator
