2. RAC Auxiliary Communications Service
The RAC Auxiliary Communications Service (ACS) will assume the original function
of the RAC Amateur Radio Emergency Service (RAC ARES), but its focus will shift
to recognize that disaster response management and telecommunication standards are
now mandated by Canadian federal, provincial and territorial legislation and regulations
and by international agreements.
RAC’s role today will be to provide a trained Auxiliary Communicator, meeting a minimal
standard across the country. These operators will be able to adapt to the obligations locally
or if called to assist in other areas throughout their sections or the country.

4. Ontario Emergency Preparedness
Everyone in Ontario is encouraged to be prepared — by creating a plan, assembling an
emergency survival kit and by staying informed.  No two households are the same. When
building your family emergency plan, be mindful of the special needs and considerations of
individuals in your household. By evaluating your unique needs, you can be better
prepared for any situation.
