NCECT Logo Edited

The mission of the Newport County Emergency Communication Team (NCECT) is to maintain a corps of trained, credentialed, and disciplined Amateur Radio Operators who are ready, able, and willing to serve their community as Emergency Communications Technicians.

In addition to the communication skills possessed by all Amateur Radio Operators, members of the Newport County Emergency Communication Team have completed FEMA training in the National Incident Management System and the Incident Command System.  They have been trained in the operation of RISCON radios, the requirements for American Red Cross shelter communication, and have been certified as Tactical Communication Unit Leaders for the Medical Emergency Distribution System.
