Welcome to the Fayette-Coweta Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) webpage. Fayette-Coweta ARES is a group of amateur radio operators who voluntarily provide communications services to our local community during emergencies and time of need. To facilitate doing that efficiently we also participate in local events and public service projects which provide training and communications experience for our members.
