The Commission has language in Part 95 Section 143  for GMRS radio systems regarding emergency operations. The language in the Part 95 regulations is not as detailed as the Part 90 wording, but the essence of the Commission's regulations is to offer a means of communicating when other means of communications are disrupted and to provide a path for safety and security and for life and property.  The sfaff at MyGMRS.com is offering this information for reference only and this information will remain at the top of this section for easy access.



§ 95.143   Managing a GMRS system in an emergency.

[a] The stations in a GMRS system must cease transmitting when the station operator of any station on the same channel is communicating an emergency message (concerning the immediate protection of property or the safety of someone's life).

[b] If necessary to communicate an emergency message from a station in a GMRS system, the licensee may permit:

(1) Anyone to be the station operator (see § 95.179); and

(2) The station operator to communicate the emergency message to any radio station.    < ** may be open to interpretation <
