Mission: RARS provides continuing community service and assistance to various local and state emergency services such as the Red Cross, North Carolina Emergency Management, and The National Weather Service. Our volunteers and equipment help provide logistics and tactical communication for various charitable events such as those sponsored by March of Dimes and Multiple Sclerosis, as well as backup for municipal communications systems. Our HAMWATCH program and our participation in SKYWARN help provide early warning and updated reports concerning public safety. Through our network of radio repeaters RARS provides invaluable information and assistance during emergency activations such as during Hurricanes, Tornados, and floods. We also educate the public with ongoing classes and presentations.
