COVID update:  Any person who is positive or has been in contact with someone who is positive will be housed in a special Department of Health Shelter.  This shelter will be maintained by medical staff and will NOT allow an ARES amateur radio operator on site.
ARES will supply three Special Needs shelters for non-COVID patients and their families.  Those shelters are located in Bartow, Davenport, and north Lakeland. Please consider serving at one of these shelters.
