EMCOMMWEST 2012 - 4-6 May 2012
EMCOMM (EMergency COMMunications) has been a vital part of all the emergency and disaster operations since the invention of the radio. It plays a very important part in getting messages to the appropriate people and places when all other modes of communication have failed. Symposiums like EMCOMMWEST provide a forum where EMCOMM served agency people have an opportunity to become familiar with the capabilities of Amateur radio and where radio Amateurs have an opportunity to receive training from representatives of various served agencies as well as sessions on technical EMCOMM-related issues. One of the first symposiums of this kind occurred in the late 1980's. The Emergency Response Instutute (ERI) was first sponsored by the Santa Clara Valley Section of the ARRL and held in San Jose CA. Served agencies that participated in the first ERI include the American Red Cross, Salvation Army, California Department of Forestry and Santa Clara County. ERI became a yearly event that continued until the mid 1990's.
