He started out as the Southeast Massachusetts Coastal Amateur Radio Emergency Services Emergency Coordinator in 1996 and became a District Emergency Coordinator in 1998 while supporting what would evolve into SEMARA ARES in the early 2000s. In 2005, Rob became the Eastern Massachusetts ARES Section Emergency Coordinator where he served until July 21st 2014 where his professional work commitments forced him to step down from that position.

Rob has also served as the ARES SKYWARN Coordinator for NWS Taunton since 1996 and has been an avid SKYWARN Spotter since he got his Ham license in 1998.
