Amateur Radio Volunteers at Public Events
Licensed Amateur Radio operators are encouraged to assist as communications volunteers at events in which the public will benefit from their volunteer services. Most of these events are runs, hikes, walks, and rides in which members of the public participate and can be at risk. Two-way radio enables multiple volunteers to exchange information and coordinate a response to an incident quickly.
Amateur Radio operators providing volunteer support at public events also gain valuable experience that will be useful in times of disaster, another circumstance in which Amateur Radio gets the message through.
