ATS and Emergency Management
Emergency Communications (emcomm) is at the heart of Emergency Management. As defined by the the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), this is part of why Amature Radio operators are given radio spectrum bandwidth. The FCC recognized that with the average sprinkling of Ham operators nation wide, each providing and maintaining their own equipment, there would be the potential to stitch together a nation wide communications network should a natural disaster occur.

The ATS has, as members, several of the Civil Emergency Management Coordinators for various city and county organizations. Some of them are listed below with links to their respective web sites:
