ARES has opened the doors to all who would like to attend from the surrounding clubs. We have had our Spring Planning Session for the upcoming ARES Exercise on 28 April 2019 at the Arnprior Fire Hall. The exercise will be a thunderstorm scenario causing a situation to possibly causing power outages and / or a small wild fire. Many aspects of amateur radio will be tested. Details about the exercise are soon to be released by email.
