Team Members

The Headquarters amateur radio group consists of two teams. Alpha Team is the core volunteer group. Bravo Team consists of amateur radio operators that are dedicated to other local authority emergency programs in the region but have received training on the procedures and use of the radio equpment at EMBC HQ.

Bravo Team’s primary response is to their local authority first and will assist EMBC only if their local authority is not involved in an event. A Letter of Understanding has been signed between EMBC HQ and the Peninsula Emergency Measures Organization (PEMO) to provide PEMO members on a mutual aid basis.
