AUXCOMM Class Upcoming

If you are really interested in emergency communications, this is the class for you.  I took it a couple of years ago and found it to be excellent.
Auxcomm is scheduled for September 29th – 30th at the Denton County EOC. This certification class is highly recommended to those communicators that wish to work with public safety organizations. Please register soon as the deadline will arrive before you know it.
