SHAred RESources (SHARES) High Frequency(HF) Radio Program

The SHARES HF Radio Program, administered by the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Emergency Communications (OEC), provides an additional means for users with a national security and emergency preparedness mission to communicate when landline and cellular communications are unavailable. SHARES members use existing HF radio resources to coordinate and transmit messages needed to perform critical functions, including those areas related to leadership, safety, maintenance of law and order, finance, and public health.

OEC also provides Government Emergency Telecommunications Service (GETS) and the Wireless Priority Service. For information on GETS and WPS pages go to the GETS Home Page or WPS Home Page.
