IMPORTANT:Network-wide Tablet Issue March 6, 2018
We are currently working through a few challenges pertaining to ERS tablets and their function. We believe we have resolutions for the issues and are working closely with our IT department. For now, the most critical concern is keeping each tablet powered up and charging continuously.
The ERS Mobile App must remain "live" in order for notifications to be received.
IMPORTANT:Network-wide Tablet Issue- March 2, 2018

To prevent this from occurring, the driver must periodically check the tablet and always click refresh anytime the device comes out of sleep mode.

Rusty or Corroded Spare Wheel Installation
AAA has recently experienced an increase in damage complaints related to rusty or corroded spare tire assemblies being installed on member's vehicles.
It is of the utmost importance to properly inspect all spare wheel assemblies prior to installation. Please contact your Field Rep if you have any questions or concerns.
Walk-in Policy and Facility Request Policy Update
As part of our continuing efforts to maintain AAA Western and Central New York's high level of member satisfaction, we would like to clarify several points regarding calls for members who:
- Walk into a facility in need of service
- Are encountered roadside in need of service
- Contact AAA to request a certain provider.
While we recognize a very limited number of circumstances for which a member may contact a facility directly for service, we will no longer allow "walk-ins" to be called in by a service provider.
Members must contact AAA directly at 1-800-AAA-HELP to place a road service request.
We will no longer process a member request for a specific facility to provide service. This type of request has a negative impact on our Service Provider Network and overall coverage plan. All requests for service will be dispatched to the facility contracted to provide service in the area.
We will be re-enforcing these items, effective today, and your cooperation and support is greatly appreciated. It is critical in ensuring the long term viability and growth of our External Road Service Network.
We understand that in certain, limited cases a direct member request may be unavoidable, such as police ordered calls or possibly during extreme weather events. For these situations, please contact your ERS Field Rep directly and they will work with you on proper payment submission for these calls.
