RACES (Radio Amateurs in Civil Emergency Service) is a public service provided by a volunteer communications group. During RACES activation, certified reserve personnel are called upon to perform tasks for the government agencies they serve. The common thread is communications. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) provides planning guidance and technical assistance for establishing RACES organizations at the state and local government levels.
