We are a unit of trained professionals who supply communications assistance to the agencies of the City and County of San Francisco on an on-going basis, but particularly in time of disaster. Our goal is to support the gathering and distribution of information necessary to respond to and recover from a disaster. Our standard method of communication is voice mode Amateur Radio (Ham), but ACS also utilizes data modes of Amateur Radio (Packet, etc), video (Amateur TV & commercial), telephone, Internet, and the public service radio frequencies. 

Volunteers are primarily licensed Amateur Radio Operators; individuals possessing other technical and communications skills and licenses are also welcome to apply. Training in basic emergency communications is provided, as well as in-depth training and drilling to familiarize personnel with the many City Agencies we serve.
