Preparatory Emergency Groups

 What is "PEG"?  The Preparatory Emergency Groups (PEG) is both a custom licensing program and radio system designed and offered by US Preparatory.  It's the first radio communications system for the civil community (non-commercial) providing an independent alternative to mainstream forms of communication and personal radio service options.

Designed, but not limited to emergency communications and neighborhood watch groups, civil organizations such as disaster relief and shelter organizations as well as general notification and emergency preparedness groups.  PEG dramatically increases resources to you and your family by creating a local support network within the user community that offers vital information, personal safety and situational awareness in the event of an emergency. Here are some of the major advantages over personal radio services such as HAM radio, GMRS, CB, FRS and MURS options:

  • No classes, individual radio licenses or technical knowledge necessary
  • PEG specific hardware eliminates the complexities of a conventional radio system
  • A single group license covers all authorized users of this private radio service
  • User IDs, protocol and procedures are set by the group, not by a “community” of outsiders
  • The national InterGroup channel allows for communications with other PEG licensed groups
  • PEG users have priority use of the channels within 75 miles of the coverage area

The licensing programs and system design offer capabilities and features usually only seen in government radio systems but at a fraction of the cost using unconventional hardware and a different design layout compared to a traditional radio system.

PEG is more closely related to the radio system of a fire department than a HAM or GMRS radio repeater. Designed from the ground up with flexibility in mind. From a simple simplex, radio to radio system to a multi-county or state wide area system and beyond, PEG's likely what your looking for.

Our mindset is geared towards community safety, general awareness and well being over profits and PEG systems are one of the tools to help offer this providing a better alternative for groups and organization that take their radio communication system seriously.
