Membership is not required to be a NEMCo community volunteer. However, we do recommend obtaining a NEMCo membership as a credentialed Emergency Worker, which involves a background check and being registered as a Washington State Emergency Worker to support vital volunteer roles during events or a disaster.  Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) classes are offered periodically.

Membership in RACES requires a Federal Communications Commission (FCC)-approved Amateur Radio License.  Licensing classes and testing are available at several area locations.
