The EMC's (EMergency Communications) objective is to determine the needs of communication of the Luxembourg rescue services and to complement with the means of amateur-radio communications in the case of an emergency. In addition, we can provide quick and simple communication options in the greater region and on international level for voice communication and / or data exchange. We will create a concept in order to respond to these needs and we will organize regular exercises in emergency communication. The concept also includes the planning and the failure safety of the infrastructure. The necessary infrastructure will be set up and tested together with the other working groups.
The EMC group is also responsible for the contact with other international emergency communication groups. Accordingly, the coordination of national and international regulatory affairs falls within the field of duties of the EMC.

On August 9th 2015 the LARU has organised an emergency communication exercise in collaboration with the frogmen of the luxembourgish emergency service. The goal was to test an infrastructure enabling voice communication and position reports in the area of the reservoir "Lac de la Haute Sûre". A DMR repeater and an APRS digipeater were used with success.
