Volunteers & Membership


The ECS volunteers are amateur operators, or HAMS, as they like to be called, who are organized and trained by the Fontana Police Department. Their mission is to provide continuous supplemental and emergency backup communications in order to free up the public safety radio system and to assist with the local response to emergencies.

These citizen volunteers serve their community not only with their time but provide their own radio and other equipment at no cost to the city, county, state, or federal agencies with which they work. Truly, these dedicated individuals are an invaluable asset to their community.


If you would like to participate in this kind of service to your community and are an amateur radio operator, please review the Fontana ECS Membership Information Sheet.
