Pamlico Amateur Radio Club

Education, Training & Testing

It is strongly encouraged that all hams take the ICS 100, 200, 700, and 800 courses. These courses are required to volunteer in the County Emergency Office in order for the county to continue to get federal funding. The courses will take about a day to complete. Please complete them and volunteer to work the EOC or a shelter in the next storm. County Management and the citizens of Beaufort County need your help.
