Located in the county of Collin, TX, we were organized in 1975 by a group of amateurs who had a strong desire to serve their community and provide emergency communications.  

The primary function of Collin County Amateur Radio Emergency Services or CollinARES, is to support our Served Agencies. Supported agencies, but not limited to include the National Weather Service, Red Cross, Homeland Security and The Department of Health Services.
