If you are interested in emergency communications in Rhode Island AND you are a licensed Amateur Radio Operator, or you used to be active in ARES and want to become active again we encourage you to become a member of the RI ARES team.

We are have returned to the old Database. Members who were in the old system still retain their info. Members who were in the ARRL ARES Connect system have been imported.

How to Sign Up

Registration is easy and can be done right now online. Visit the RI ARES Membership Application and complete the form.

In the event of a situation we need to be able to contact you, so be sure to include at least one good phone number and a valid email address. Remember, if you can’t be reached you are not a useful member of the group.

Be sure to choose a secure password. Do not use a password that you use for any other online services. Do not include easily guessed patterns like your call sign, your name, simple keyboard patterns like “qwerty” or simple patterns like “123456” or “abcdefg”.  Best practice is to use a long phrase interspersed with numbers and capital letters like “a4pasSword9isbeSTKept2SECret3”, a completely random password or to use a password card.
