ARES - Amateur Radio Emergency Services

ares ARES has been the communications life-line for the RLCT for as long as most of us can remember!

Through out the supported routes, ARES sets up communications repeater stations and mobile units to monitor the tour and keep the Route Marshal and organization team up to date on any issues on the road.

Most people will know ARES for their friendly cheers at key locations along the route - and for communicating a need for a support vehicle to a specific location.

Ofcourse, the privileged few will also know the ARES mobile unit for doing such a good job on the sweep on the tail of the supported routes .. both days!

St. John Ambulance

Why? .. because 'stuff happens', and it's nice to have professional first responders on-site in Kingston!


"Well-trained and well-equipped, St. John Ambulance volunteers are at countless public events to give first aid care when emergencies occur. By being there, St. John volunteers are 'first on the scene' in the critical minutes until medical assistance arrives".
