CERT needs its own radio frequency

CERT teams all over the country use FRS, GMRS or whatever free radios they can find on the market. besides the limited range, everybody can use these kind of radios, so in a disaster every neighbor or even kids can play with these radios and make it impossible for a CERT team to use them and help saving lives. So CERT needs a nation frequency pair, so they can put up their own repeaters and can get radios that will not interfere with any free service. Something that is not use by other agencies as well, so they can't get pushed off when this agency has a new need.
