Auxiliary Communications (AUXCOMM) refers to the broad range of volunteer emergency communication personnel and organizations who support emergency responders under the National Incident Management System/Incident Command System (NIMS/ICS).

Albemarle AUXCOMM supports the Albemarle/Charlottesville/UVA Office of Emergency Management (and through it, other public and private organizations involved in emergency planning and response).

Please look at the volunteer expectations on the “Volunteer” page (linked above).
