ACS Meeting & Training
We will hold our monthly ACS meeting and training Saturday, September 21st, at South Seattle College, Olympic Hall, Room 101.
- 8:00 am – voluntary – Rapid Tag system training for anyone interested.
- 8:30 am – normal “doors open” and coffee.

The meeting will cover all the activities we have done over the summer months, including public service events, technical work and site improvements, some important announcements about upcoming events, and more. Please attend as we gear up for our fall/winter/spring meeting and training series.
Rapid Tag is the system we now use to log people in and out of missions and exercises. We started using it to sign people in and out of our meetings also. This is an easy to use system that provides excellent tracking and documentation benefits for emergency workers. It is the system we use to scan the QR code on the front of your new badges.
New Member Orientation
ACS will conduct a new member orientation on Saturday September 21st from 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm at the Seattle Emergency Operations Center (EOC), which is located at 105 5th Ave S., Seattle. This is the corner of 5th Ave S., and S. Washington Street. The EOC is adjacent to Fire Station 10, which occupies the entire block on Washington between 4th Ave and 5th Ave. The EOC entrance in on 5th Ave, just north of Washington Street.
EOC Training Series
There are two classes that all EOC responders are required to take. ACS members who respond to the EOC are expected to take these classes. All other ACS members (those who will not normally respond to the EOC) are welcome and encouraged to take these classes. The two classes are EOC Fundamentals and EOC in Practice.
The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is offering these classes during normal business hours as indicated in the attached flyer, and will also offer the classes on Sunday October 6th from 9 am to Noon (EOC Fundamentals) and from 1 pm to 3:30 pm (EOC in Practice). ACS members may attend either the weekday classes or the October 6th classes. All classes will be held at the Seattle EOC, 105 5th Ave S., Seattle.
