About us

CC WICEN is the Central Coast branch of WICEN.

While not part of the CCARC, CC WICEN uses the CCARC club rooms at Kariong for their meetings and many members of the CCARC are also members of CC WICEN.

As well as providing emergency communications support (either in a primary – critical information, or a support role – to reduce the load on the emergency services networks) in the time of disaster such as floods, fire or earthquake CC WICEN also supports local community and sports associations with safety communications in areas where other communications (such as cellular phones) are not available. Without this support from CC WICEN those events would either have to spend a lot of money installing and running temporary commercial communications or would not be able to run their event. CC WICEN directly supports the St Albans one day and Shazada horse trials each year. CC WICEN also supports other WICEN branches and the WICEN NSW state organisation in supply of communications capabilities to the Great North Walk and the Hawksberry Classic canoe race each year.
