Blaine's Auxiliary Communications Service (ACS) supports the Department of Public Safety with a team of dedicated civilian volunteers who bring expertise in communications and related technologies, including electronics, radio, telephony and Internet services.
Essential Volunteers Solving Problems
Two main problems faced Blaine in ensuring emergency communications in a small border community:
Providing back up communications and interoperability were not possible for Blaine's Public Safety Department until it commissioned an Auxiliary Communications Service unit.
The City of Blaine and the Public Safety Department support ACS efforts with funding for equipment and training whenever possible. All work provided in building, maintaining, and operating the ACS equipment is volunteered by the ACS members. Over 2,000 hours of volunteer expertise have gone in to putting our communications van on the road.
