Emergency Services

 Many people assume ham radio is just for yacking at someone around the world.  It's much more than that.  When a disaster strikes a whole area could be without electricity and cell phone towers.  So normal emergency communications could be down.  Groups like ARES and RACES come into play.   Ham radio operators that are equipped with battery power and generators can get messages in and out of disaster areas when other forms of communications are down.   Since the ham operators already live in the area they can be used in a short amount of time.  Especially if roads, bridges, etc are out as well.
