You were most definately mistaken. ESPECIALLY in emergency situations,
operating protocol is to be followed. There are established policies and
procedures in effect. ARES (Amateur Radio Emergency Service) networks

amateur frequencies because there is a state of emergency declared.
You must be acting to mitigate an immediate threat to human life.
And then any frequency is fair game, not just amateur frequencies.
