SKYWARN Storm Spotter Radio

Why NE ARES Matters?

When Nebraska has damaging and dangerous weather, Nebraska Amateur Radio Emergency Services (NE ARES) Volunteers are the first line of defense. NE ARES Volunteers serve their community as trained weather spotters to work in conjunction with local emergency management authorities to provide early warning reports to help local officials save lives. NE ARES volunteers are Nebraskans just like you. They care about their community and donate their time freely to help make their neighborhoods safe. When damaging weather does impact an area, they are often the first people into a disaster area to assist emergency management teams in damage assessments. This service helps to reduce response times for disaster services such as FEMA.
