Ham Radio Operators
Net control and radio communications are a key part of making a rally successful. An amateur radio license is required to volunteer for one of these positions. Radio operators are stationed at the start, end and in most cases somewhere in the middle of every stage. Operators are also placed at every spectator area during the event. More experienced operators are at rally headquarters maintaining our "net control", which is the main communication method for our event. All operator volunteers will need to provide their own equipment. For some locations, a high power radio may be required.
A marshal's main job is to control road access, work with non-rally traffic, spectators, as well as rally traffic. There is no training required to hold this position and this role has one of the best opportunities to see the cars up close and at full speed. A stage captain is in charge of marshal locations and providing support to any questions or needs.
Safety is the main concern of all rallies, not only for competitors, but volunteers and spectators as well. Medical assistance that can quickly be on site of any emergency situations is of great importance. Medical teams are needed for every stage, with multiple teams per stage to ensure minimal response time. Doctors, nurses, paramedics, first responders, licensed EMT's are encouraged to apply. Volunteers are required to provide their own equipment.
From pre-bannering the stages to helping set up the awards ceremony, help is volunteers are needed for many roles. Please indicate if there is a particular role you would be interested in on the worker sign up form.
