Community Involvement:

 

The Lapeer County Amateur Radio Association is as diverse as its nearly 60 members. We are involved with a number of community service activities which include SkyWarn in conjunction with the National Weather Service and local officials to provide an early warning system in the event of threatening weather. We also provide a system for back up communications for our county in the event that a natural or other disaster should occur. 

 

On the three major holidays each summer LCARA provides a service to weary travelers. At Operation CARE (Combined Accident Reduction Effort), we provide free refreshments to travelers at our local rest area in conjunction with the Michigan State Police, MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving), and AAA Insurance Company.

 

In June we participate in the annual Field Day exercise. During Field Day we set up and operate amateur stations under emergency power simulating a national disaster. This event takes place over a 24 hour period giving new and prospective amateurs a chance to work a number of stations under the direction of one of our seasoned veterans. Although Field Day has developed into a major contest for many, it is still a great opportunity to test yourself and your equipment. Join us each year for a fun event. LCARA also participates in the annual Simulated Emergency Test where we provide emergency communications for local fire, EMS, emergency management and public safety personnel.

 

In August, the City of Lapeer holds its annual Lapeer Days festival. We have space on the porch of the oldest courthouse in Michigan for a special event station. This is a great opportunity to demonstrate our hobby to the public.

 

Lapeer Regional Hospital hosts a heart run/walk each summer. LCARA provides communications along the route for the safety of participants.

 

Join us for a fun time promoting our great hobby.
