Simcoe County Ham Radio Emergency Communications
The HAM Radio Emergency Communications Project ensures that during a County of Simcoe emergency, HAM radio communication will be available if required. Generally, HAM Radio emergency communication would be called upon when other primary and secondary telecommunications methods are inoperable (e.g. land-line telephony, cellular telephony, Internet). In order for the HAM radio emergency communications to be effective, there must be appropriate equipment available, as well as, trained and licensed HAM Radio operators.
