Snohomish County Auxiliary Communications Service
(ACS)

 

 

Snohomish County ACS/ARES provides communications services to Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management and member agencies through the Auxiliary Communications Service (ACS) function as well as county hospitals and the Snohomish County Regional Chapter of the American Red Cross via the Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) function.

Other tasks that ACS/ARES personnel are involved with may not involve amateur radio communications. For example, communicators may become involved in public safety or other government communications, Emergency Operations Center (EOC) staffing, and emergency equipment repair.

Snohomish County ACS/ARES holds on air nets every Tuesday at 20:00 local time on the Granite Falls 146.920- (tone 123.0) repeater.  The team also meets at the Snohomish County DEM offices at 720 80th St SW, Everett, WA 98203 the third Thursday of the month at 19:00.  Anyone is welcome on the net or at the meetings.
