Waukesha County ARES/RACES

Welcome to Waukesha County ARES/RACES

The primary responsibility of Waukesha County ARES/RACES is to provide Waukesha County and the surrounding area with an effective emergency communications support system which functions as a part of the Waukesha County Emergency Operations Plan.

Special Event communications may be provided during non-emergency periods. These activities provide members with training, experience, and an opportunity to field test equipment and operating procedures while performing a valuable public service and providing essential communications support to the requesting organization.
