The Emergency Communications Group (ECG) was established in 2014 in the City of Riverside, as an auxiliary communications asset for the City of Riverside Fire Department - CERT program. Our focus is to develop and foster interoperability between auxiliary radio operators and disaster preparation/relief volunteers. In an effort to fulfill this vision, the group has put into place a networking portal to promote discussions relevant to radio operations, disaster preparedness, disaster relief coordination, training, and event coordination. We also offer a weekly Net ("Live" on the air discussion) to practice good radio operation skills and discuss topics found on our portal.

The Riverside EmComm Group (Riverside ECG) has a weekly communications network or "NET." This "Net" is open to all licensed amateur radio operators. Our discussions are related to operations conducted with City of Riverside CERT members, but we encourage other CERT organizations to join us. The purpose of the Net is to focus on inter-neighborhood communication capabilities in the event of a catastrophic event. The members of this network are dedicated to providing assistance to their neighbors during catastrophic incidents.
