What is ARES and what does it do?

The Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) is an American Radio Relay League (ARRL) sponsored organization. ARES is not as constrained by its activation requirements. It normally takes over if communications are still required when the RACES guidelines are no longer met. It can be activated for any request requiring communications support.
