Boulder, United States

Boulder County Amateur Radio Emergency Services (BCARES) is a non-profit, public service corporation which provides equipment and volunteer personnel to perform communication services during emergencies. As a member of BCARES, you will represent our organization to the community and served agencies.

Before applying, you will need to complete all items in the "Must Have" section below. The Associate Level requirements are identified in the chart on Page 2 of the Application document. When the complete package, (Signed App, Signed MOU, and evidence of training completed) is received, you will be contacted by our Membership Coordinator with further instructions and information.

After receiving the application packet, we will request a basic records check with the Boulder County  Sheriff's Office. A recent change to this process, by the BCSO, now includes an on-line Volunteer Application form to be completed. This is a requirement for any and all BCSO volunteers (most of which are not BCARES members).  When this is complete, the next step will be an invitation to stop by the Sheriff's office for fingerprinting and a photo for the issuing of the ID that identifies you as a BCARES member.
