CREST stands for Community Radio Emergency Support Team. CREST is working to organize neighborhood radio nets so when disaster strikes and primary services become unavailable, people will be able to seek help.

In the CREST approach, net coordinators will be licensed amateur radio operators associated with ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Service), but neighborhood nets can operate on any common radio system including FRS (Family Radio Service) and CB (Citizens Band).
