Butte County Sheriff Communication Reserve is an all volunteer IRS 501c3 tax exempt organization. While our vehicles are maintained for us by the Sheriff's Office, replacement of vehicles and equipment is dependent on donations from Butte County residents and businesses.

Radio Equipment
We always welcome to opportunity to put used radio equipment to good use within our organization. Old ham radio equipment of any type, CB radios, antennas and power supplies are always items which we are actively seeking.

Com Reserve is able to provide a receipt for any donated equipment, showing current fair-market value of the donation, for tax purposes.

For large or heavy items, we can arrange to pick up equipment. In some cases we can take down antenna systems which are no longer needed.

If you have any questions regarding an equipment donation, see our Contact Us page.

Comm 2, our mobile communications center, is in need of replacement. Recent damage, while enroute to support a search east of Magalia, has rendered the former 4WD vehicle a 2WD vehicle. We are looking for a diesel, cab-chassis in the 22,000 lbs load range. 4WD or at least high ground clearance is preferred.

Cash Donations
There is a constant list of items that the unit is in need of, from updating our radio eqipment to replacing worn out items. Any donation is appreciated.
