Welcome to the ACREM-VIC website!
Australian Citizens Radio Emergency Monitors Inc. (ACREM) is a volunteer Public Benevolent Institution whose primary role is the provision of volunteer monitoring services on the CB band emergency channels.
Originally formed in NSW in 1975, ACREM is the second longest serving CB monitoring group in Australia. Its members have served the communities of NSW, Queensland and Victoria during some of their worst disasters and emergencies, and continue to stand ready to serve the communities during future events.
Emergency & Safety Communications
ACREM members provide emergency communications to many communities, especially during times when ordinary means of communications may fail. Our primary role is home-based monitoring of CB emergency channels, and in some cases other CB channels used locally, responding to calls for assistance from the community and relaying the information to the required service(s).
In addition members sometimes assist community groups with safety communications for events such as fun runs, triathlons, cycle races, and more, although our primary function always remains home based monitoring.
To serve the community through the provision of volunteer monitoring services on the Australian CB bands, safety communications for community events, and such other communications services or support as may be necessary or appropriate to render assistance to the community.
