Geauga Emergency Amateur Radio Service

Our goal is to help make our community a better place by supporting public safety agencies and non-profits.

Our primary mission is to provide backup and secondary communications to our served agencies when needed.  We also provide general volunteer and manpower services to the community.

About Us

Emergency Communications

Our trained volunteers can provide much-needed backup and secondary communications in times of emergency or disaster.

Licensed and Trained

Our volunteers are licensed amateur radio operators and are well-trained, including Incident Command System training.

Events and Volunteering

We volunteer for events like festivals, bike rides, marathons and the Great Geauga County Fair. This helps us give back to the community while practicing our skills.


We are a non-profit corporation. We do not charge for our services. We accept donations and sell merchandise.

Volunteer Work

Some of our volunteer efforts.

The Great Geauga County Fair

We volunteer at the Fair every year, assisting the Sheriff’s Office and driving and dispatching golf carts to help people move around. (more info)
