Our team of more than 24 volunteers provide emergency communications when traditional methods fail. The team also provides information technilogy problem solving to our Emergency Support Services team. This group meets weekly on Wednesday evenings. In addition to these official roles the team is often called upon to provide communications support for large community events like running, bicycle or sailing races. Our members come from diverse backgrounds and include amateur radio operators, information technology professionals and residents interested in supporting their community in an emergency or disaster.
This is a great volunteer opportunity for experienced or new ham radio operators. You don’t need any certifications to join us! By attending Wednesday evening activities and weekend exercises, you will be prepared to take a “ham course” and become a certified Amateur Radio Operator.
You’ll also gain excellent experience by taking part in joint exercises with Emergency Support Services and other regional radio teams.
Emergency Radio Communications is a dedicated group with a strong focus on mentoring and teamwork. Learn more about our Intake Process.
