UtahSAG also makes it's volunteers and equipment available to local public service and community organizations such as police and fire departments, when requested, in the event of public emergencies as well as the National Weather Service of Utah to provide weather information from around the state during emergency weather conditions.
By supporting these events UtahSAG provides services to around 8,000 event participants each year. SAG services include transportation, food/water and general care so that the participants can enjoy the event they are participating in.
UtahSAG is comprised of a three person board of directors, all of whom are HAM radio operators, as well as an informal association of over 400 HAM radio volunteers throughout the state and including operators in Idaho and Nevada.
