Who is RACES? (Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Service)
RACES is a public service by dedicated amateur radio
operators that provides communications personnel to
government agencies in time of extraordinary need. (when all
else fails!) RACES is administered by the Seal Beach and Los
Alamitos Police Departments.
What We Do
RACES operations include two main areas: Observe and
report on local conditions during an emergency and provide
emergency message handling on Amateur Radio Service
frequencies. During periods of activation, RACES personnel
are called upon to provide many tasks for the cities of Seal
Beach and Los Alamitos (including Leisure World). Although
the exact nature of each Activation will be different, the
common thread is communications.
