With the rapid convergence of communications and information technology (IT), SBECS uses and supports a wide range of web based volunteer management, shelter management, and Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) mapping software.

SBECS operates on a system of six frequencies, located on five mountain tops circling the Los Angeles Basin, that is Radiation – Learn More About Radiation and Health., multi-channel, multi-band on 2 Meter, 440 MHz, Echolink and IRLP.

SBECS members must have passed The FBIʼs InfraGard® background vetting process and be members of InfraGard®.
