The primary purpose of Jackson County ARES/RACES (JCAR) is to provide severe weather spotting and emergency communication assistance to the Jackson County EMA and the National Weather Service, as well as providing emergency communications to all local authorities if needed during any emergency in the area.
JCAR holds regularly scheduled monthly meetings on the second Saturday of each month at the Hollywood Community Center in Hollywood Alabama. The address is 6759 Co. Rd 33 Hollywood, AL 35752.
The meeting starts promptly at 10:00AM and we invite everyone that is wanting breakfast to stop by Shorty Machen Grocery before the meeting.
Backup meeting sites are the Jackson County Rescue Squad building on Cedar Hill Drive in Scottsboro and when weather permits, the metal pavilion at the Jackson County Park.
All JCAR Members, local HAMs, and anyone interested in amateur radio are encouraged to attend. For more information on meetings please see here.
The Jackson County ARES Net is held each Thursday evening at 7:30pm on the 146.90 repeater. For more information please see our Repeater and Net information here.
