The Communications Department of EMA has the main function of coordinating all communications between the various departments and staff of the local Emergency Management organization as well as communications to agencies outside of the organization such as the local police and fire, State Emergency Management (SEMA) State Police and National Weather Service.

The services provided by the Communications group are performing .net control activities, emergency lighting and power, communications training, severe weather spotting activities through races (Radio, Amateur, Civil, Emergency,  Services in support of the NWS Skywarn) and inter-departmental support activities.

Our services are used many different ways by the various agencies and community. In support of the local police and Drug Enforcement agencies we will use our mobile emergency. lighting capabilities with 7000 watts if lighting to  illuminate crime scenes during the investigations. In the event of widespread power outages we are able currently provide over. 80,000 watts of mobile generating capacity with an additional 350,000 watts to be available in the near future. In support of the community, we provide the parking lot support and security the Western High School sporting events as well as support of many. other community activities such as the county fair and Haynes Apperson Festival to name a few.

. The most exciting new feature that Communications supports is the Mobile Command Center. Our support of this vehicle includes a full communications center for local, state, and amateur radio communications, a mobile weather station, telephone and computer support and a remotely controlled low light camera system with 55X zoom. This mobile command is fully self supporting with 13000 watts of electrical generating capacity.

 With the full service capabilities of the communications group  we are a integral member of the Kokomo/Howard County Emergency Management Agency.
