The Prescott-Russell Amateur Radio Emergency Services Group (PR-ARES) is made up of volunteer amateur radio operators in the United Counties of Prescott-Russell in Eastern Ontario, Canada.

Our members have volunteered to provide radio communications services and equipment during any man-made or natural emergency that affects our community, such as power outages, ice storms, floods or earthquake. PR-ARES offers its members emergency preparedness training and a weekly radio network exercise. PR-ARES also offers Basic amateur radio courses for anyone in the region to become a licensed radio amateur operator. Every licensed radio amateur in the United Counties of Prescott-Russell is eligible for membership in this Group. The possession of emergency-powered equipment is highly desirable but not a requirement
