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 EMA located at 1555 Guthrie Dr NW, Cleveland, TN. Contact number (423) 728-7289.  Meeting are held the third Thursday of every month at 7:00 PM (except for the month of December).

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.
