Welcome to Huntington Beach RACES
Huntington Beach RACES operates under the authority of the Huntington Beach Fire Department, Emergency Management and Homeland Security Office. The goal of RACES is to provide auxiliary communications services (ACS) to the City in the event of a significant emergency in Huntington Beach.
During times of emergency, our members may be called upon to exchange messages between key locations such as fire stations, police stations, hospitals, schools, public works facilities and other city resources. Our members are trained in the use of various communications modes and use the best available means to provide auxiliary communications. All RACES members provide and operate their own equipment.
The membership of HB RACES is screened and is required to maintain competency in communications, technology and emergency response processes through participation in regular training, drills and community events. All applicants must pass a thorough background check conducted by the Huntington Beach Police Department.
