The Robeson County Amateur Radio Society, Inc. is the only publicly supported corporation in the county with tax exempt status granted by the Internal Revenue Service under section 501(c) 3 dedicated solely to the support of amateur radio emergency communication. The Society is incorporated under the laws of the State of North Carolina and is governed by a Board of Directors. No officer or board member receives any salary from the corporation.
RCARS membership is drawn exclusively from the active membership of the Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) and consists of well trained operators, many of whom have already proven their ability in the face of emergencies and disasters. These men and women are constantly improving their knowledge and abilities through training exercises and simulated emergency tests.
