ARES MN Metro serves the community and in particular emergency management community in the nine county metro area. We train by providing health and safety communications at community events like the Twin Cities and Minneapolis Marathon. This page is in part to recruit Metro Area hams to community service.

This page is administered by David Johnson, Ass't District Emergency Coordinator, Public Information Officer, MN Amateur Radio Emergency Service, Metro District.

This will be a place where media contacts in the metro area can learn about ARES MN Metro.
