Want to be more involved in the community?  The following groups are Emcomm (Emergency Communications) groups in the county.  Each of them is affiliated with a public safety organization.  Membership in these groups is normally free, although training is required.

MBARC is not affiliated with any of these groups, although many of our members also participate in them.
