Amateur Radio Operators

Helping Us Stay Connected During an Emergency

During a disaster such as a major windstorm, flooding, or an earthquake, all the official radio communication channels within the City could potentially be jammed with emergency traffic. Recognizing the uncertain nature of emergency communications, the Renton Fire Department coordinates a group of amateur radio operators that help the City during emergencies. The City is currently seeking volunteers interested in learning more about amateur radio operations. For additional information, contact Emergency Management Coordinator, Mindi Mattson, at 425.430.7041.
