There is a new PIO presentation (PDF) posted in the PIO Information link on the right hand side of the screen. This is a pre-prepared ARES information brief built by the PIO to be available to ARES members to brief external audiences.

The Pierce County Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) provides volunteer emergency communications for served agencies, such as local departments of emergency management, and the broader community. Please enjoy our webpage, and don't hesitate to contact us if you would like more information or are interested in getting involved. ARES is a group of volunteers who train and qualify to provide emergency communications support when disaster strikes. ARES assists local agencies during times of bad weather, such as windstorms and flooding, earthquakes, and any other incident that disrupts ordinary day to day communication. Our motto is, "When all else fails."
