Emergency Communications (EmComm)
Amateur radio operators play a critical role in setting up and operating organized communication networks, particularly during times of crisis or emergency. They provide crucial support to government and emergency officials, as well as private citizens affected by disaster. When regular lines of communication are disrupted by power outages or damage to infrastructure-dependent systems like telephone and cellular networks, amateur radio operators are often the first to step up and fill the communication gap. By providing non-commercial communication services, they are able to keep people connected and informed when they need it most.
