WICEN NSW Communications

WICEN is a statewide body which has been created to serve the needs of the particular state and as such the structure within each state differs according to the emergency management plan within that state.
In NSW, WICEN operates as a specialist support squad under the NSW State Disaster Plan (DISPLAN).


WICEN will have a stand at the Central Coast Amateur Radio Club's Wyong Field Day on 22 February 2015.

The Bushwalkers Wilderness Rescue Service's website lists the Navshield, or NSW Emergency Services Wilderness Navigation Shield, for the weekend of the 4th and 5th of July. It will be held at an undisclosed location, typically within a few hours' drive of Sydney.

WICEN has a twitter account: @wicennsw

Facebook users will find the official WICEN New South Wales page, an informal national WICEN group, and at least one interstate group.

WICEN ACT is part of the Canberra Region Amateur Radio Club, and supports events in the ACT and surrounding areas. The club's website at http://www.crarc.ampr.org includes details of both WICEN and general events, including training.
