The Communications Team was formed in the early 1960s. They maintain and operate the Sheriff's Communications Truck, which communicates with Search and Rescue (SAR) personnel in the field as well as Sheriff's Dispatch and Allied Agencies. They maintain and operate an extensive system of Amateur Radio Repeaters which are used to supplement SAR frequencies and to coordinate search resources en-route to the search area.

Prospective members are invited to attend our Team meetings which are held the 3rd Monday of each month, except December at the SAR Building in Auburn.
