Your “Go Kit”

To ensure that our local ARES members are prepared to respond to any emergency at a moment’s notice, every ham radio operator in and around Burke County should prepare and have a “grab-and-go kit” (right) ready to use in case of emergency.

According to’s Build a Kit (FEMA) page, every Grab-and-Go Kit should be sufficient to provide communications and personal needs for the ARES member if the need arises.  There is a list of items on the Build a Kit (FEMA) page that you will want to consider for your grab-and-go kit.
