For many years WICEN has provided field deployed emergency communications during disasters, emergencies, and community activities.
WICEN is more an umbrella name given to a collection of emergency or community service communications groups who have set up in response to their local needs.
WICEN is totally independent from the WIA, though many WICEN members are also WIA members.
The WIA strongly supports the continuing activities of WICEN. By extending WIA training and Accreditation to all radio amateurs, including non-WIA members, it is expected that WICEN groups will also benefit from this scheme.
