Who We Are

The Lansing Area/Ingham County Amateur Radio Public Service Corps is a volunteer emergency communications group. The group is organized under the ARRL Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES), and the FEMA-administered Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES). R.A.C.E.S. groups are chartered by local governments; the Lansing Area group is sponsored by, and has formal working relations with, the City of Lansing Emergency Management Division, and the Ingham County Sheriff's Department.
