In the past, ARES volunteers' time working events was logged and reported by Emergency Coordinators or other designated participants. Effective February 2019, volunteers will be responsible for creating their own login to the new ARES Connect website to volunteer for an event or report their hours served during an event. ARES Connect can be accessed by this link as well as by the button provided on our FORMS AND LINKS page. During the account creating process, you'll be asked to fill out a form to include your experience and credentials related to emergency communication services. Please take the time to register on ARES Connect as your volunteerism is very important to the amateur radio service as well as to the Pecos Valley Amateur Radio Club. Should you have any issues with the registration process after watching this tutorial video, or if you do not have access to the Internet you can contact a PVARC officer for assistance.
