Callsigns & ID Cards


Callsigns used by ACREM Monitors follow the format below. Callsign formats were changed mid January 2006 to provide for ACREM's expansion into Victoria and Northern Territory:

  • the Division name, which may be dropped during ongoing transmissions; and
  • the word "ACREM" (pronounced as 'AKREM'); and
  • a number allocated by the Executive

No two ACREM Monitors share the same number.

Callsign Number Formats

1 - 19 Reserved for Executive and other uses. (see below)
20 - 99 Reserved for National uses.
101-149 Emergency Operation Centres (EOC)
901 -999 used by vehicles, etc. (see below)

State Callsign Formats

Individual callsigns consist of the following components:

  • The State identifier
  • The individual callsign number

The State Identifiers are:

2 = New South Wales
3 = Victoria
4 = Queensland
6 = Western Australia

The individual callsign number allocations are (x = State Identifier):

x - 01 to x - 10 = State Executive members.
x - 11 to x - 199 = Monitors.
x - 901 to x - 999 = Associate/EMS Members


  • Monitor callsigns are spoken in two groups - for example: Two-Eleven (2-11), Three-Fifteen (3-15), Four-Twenty Six (4-26), etc.

  • Coordinator and Region Executive callsigns (2-01 - 2-10, 3-01 - 3-10, 4-01 - 4-10, 6-01 - 6-10 are spoken as single digits - e.g. (2-01) Two Zero One, (3-02) Three Zero Two, (4-10) Four One Zero, etc.
