Auxiliary Communications Service, or ACS, is a concept adopted by a number of communities across the country to facilitate amateur radio communications in a disaster.  Usually aligned with a government agency providing relief services, local chapters of ACS are comprised of volunteer amateur radio operators who provide essential communications and warning links as a supplement to local and state government communications.

Membership requires satisfactory completion of required training to remain on active status as a volunteer for the Cleveland – Bradley County Emergency Management Agency.

Bradley County ACS is affiliated with the Cleveland – Bradley County
E MA.  Visit their website here.

ACS is supported by the Cleveland Amateur Radio Club.  Our clubhouse is a secondary site – to the Emergency Operations Center – for amateur radio communications in a disaster.
