The Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES®) in Missouri provides emergency communications to "Served Agencies" such as the Office of Emergency Management, the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army, the National Weather Service, hospitals, and others as agreed in each county. The 114 Missouri counties and the City of Saint Louis are grouped into nine ARES® districts. Many ARES® teams also provide communications for public service events such as marathons, parades, bike riding events, and boat races. The FCC prohibits any Amateur Radio Operator from accepting payment for these services.
