The Dutch Amateur Radio Emergency Service (DARES), which was founded on 12 May 2004, is a non-profit organization made out of licensed radio amateurs in the Netherlands. DARES participants are able to set up a national, continental or international radio network in case of an emergency situation, like a power outage on a large scale, a flooding, a cyber attack causing severe damage to communication networks, or other emergency situations, where the safety of a large group of people are in danger.[1][2][3]

Regions[edit]

The DARES board (consisting of a few persons) has assigned 25 regions (veiligheidsregio's), which are also used by other emergency services in the Netherlands:[4]

Every region has its own Region Coordinator (RC), which keeps their region trained.[5]
