Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service (RACES):

is an organization of FCC licensed amateur radio operators who volunteer to provide radio communications for state and local governments during times of emergency. 

We serve the Town of Huntington, Suffolk County, New York and Northwell Health Huntington Hospital.  Our members also participate in the popular  Great Cow Harbor 10K Run  in Northport, Long Island, NY.

How To Get Involved

 

A very basic overview is that we provide communication links throughout Huntington Town during events such as hurricanes and blizzards. Using amateur radio, messages are sent from the Town’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC), to key locations such as hospitals or shelters throughout Huntington.

 

Net Control broadcasts local information for FCC licensed amateur radio operators to forward to other radio operators, family and neighbors within the Town. These messages include latest press releases concerning Town services from the Huntington Town Supervisor. Radio operators in the field report back power outages, downed trees, impassable roads, flooding, and any disruptions in landline, cell phone, Cablevision or Fios service.

 

Listen HERE for a sample of our Event Net notification broadcast on 147.210.
