We are an ARES team located in Cherokee County, which is in North Georgia. One of the primary responsibilities of the Amateur Radio Service, as established by Part 97 of the Federal Communications Commission’s regulations, is the performance of public service communications for the general public, particularly in times of emergency when normal communications are not available. To that end, the Cherokee County Georgia Amateur Radio Emergency Service members, under the oversight of the American Radio Relay League, will equip themselves and train to provide communications as a direct service to the general public through government and relief agencies of Cherokee County Georgia, the State of Georgia, and Federal Agencies when requested by those agencies.
