|GCARES (Guernsey County Amateur Radio Emergency Services) meets on the first Monday of the month at 6 pm. The Guernsey County ARES’ purpose is to assist the residents of Guernsey and surrounding counties with supplementary radio communications for public events and civil emergencies. Our organization is a long-standing member of the Guernsey County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) and works in close collaboration with all public and emergency organizations of Guernsey County.
The National Weather Service (NWS), developed Skywarn to aid reporting local weather information from the field in times of emergencies. Local operators function as trained weather spotters and provide weather information to the NWS via amateur radio.
