Warning and Communications Program works with a variety of federal, state, local government agencies, volunteer groups and private industry in providing emergency communications in Wisconsin regardless of the type of disaster or emergency.
WEM also has the capability to activate Wisconsin ARES/RACES amateur radio volunteers to provide backup radio communications. Volunteers provide countless hours testing equipment in the WEM Radio Room and stand ready to provide communications should primary communications fail.
In addition, Wisconsin Emergency Management has a Mobile Command Center that can be taken anywhere in the State to provide communications for emergency relief efforts.
The Wisconsin Field Operations Guide (WI-FOG) is a collection of radio communications technical reference material for emergency responders. It contains national and state interoperability radio channels and procedures.
