Actually no, I wish they did have other frequencies available, including Ham. If the proverbial stuff does hit the fan, I would hope that they would have every means available to assist citizens, and if that means communication using amateur radio frequencies I would be all for it. I'd even help them program their radios with the correct splits/tones for local repeaters in it. You say without getting their ham license like that takes an act of Congress, go get your EMT, paramedic, firefighter 1, or for us here in California it's called a LEO post certificate. Hell of a lot harder than a ham ticket. Trust me I got a few.
