In case of hurricanes or other emergency situations, HAMS get involved. In Marion County, Florida, there are basically three ways to do this:

1.) Stay at home and monitor the situation.

2.) Be a part of the county ARES response. Go to https://www.aresmcfl.org for their information.

3.) Be a part of the Marion Emergency Radio Team (MERT), which is a part of the Marion County Sheriff’s Department Division of Emergency Services. Go to https://kg4nxo.com for more information about MERT and their mission.

So, check the above links and other TABS with useful information on the website. I hope the information on this site is helpful to you. Thanks for visiting.
