The Carteret County Amateur Radio Society owns and maintains a mobile emergency communications trailer.  Our trailer is an asset to public service when hurricanes and other natural disasters take out the cell phone towers, area repeaters, and the Down East power grid.  Our trailer serves as a vital part of the Down East first responder network.  When called upon,
Carteret County Amateur Radio Society volunteers provide a way for area fire departments, law enforcement, search and rescue, FEMA, and other emergency agencies to communicate when "All Else Fails".

Currently, our E-Coms trailer is equipped with two generators, two HF radios, a CB radio, several 2-meter/70-cm radios, a 10 & 12-meter radio, A WinLink server and backup server, a digital mobile radio, data modems, and several other pieces of communications electronics that allow us to interface with local area fire, EMS, law enforcement, and several other emergency agencies.  
Carteret County Amateur Radio Society E-Coms trailer is always ready to assist ARES, CERT, FEMA, DHS, and other agencies when called upon to assist in a disaster.
