We are in the midst organizing an AUXCOMM advisory committee that will put together the elements required to allow mutual support in times of major disasters. Training and experience requirements and structure for activations will be agreed upon. This is not a governing body for local units of the various organizations. This is a group of teams that will work within the ICS structure in responding to emergencies or disasters. They will have common training standards. These local units will continue to recruit and operate their local responses and public service events in ways of their choosing or agencies requirements. AUXCOMM will not be selecting local leaders or requiring reports from local leadership. We will encourage all AUXCOMM members to keep their training information, contact information and availability current in the AUXCOMM/EmCOMM database.
The registration on this page is for any EmComm or AUXCOMM group in Virginia. This is an
interactive registration that you can update at anytime. Your group leaders will have access to your group's information and can printout needed reports. You can also change your availability status at will.
