Emergency Preparedness

City Of Coquitlam

CARESS provides backup emergency radio communication services to the City Of Coquitlam.
This is part of the Emergency Preparedness Response Programs.

Every month, the society’s members assist the EOC or Emergency Operations Centre at city hall.
We ensure that the emergency radio equipment is functioning properly on the 2m VHF and 80m HF bands using both voice and data traffic.
