A major milestone achieved.

We should be able to remove the forms in 1 week and back fill in the holes in about 2 weeks. After a curing period of 28 days, we will begin to raise the 3 towers.

An incredible job by all of the volunteers and die-hards of CARESS.

Stay tuned for more updates.

Our goal was to assist the various SAR teams by evaluating and establishing a radio link from the head of the lake all the way down to Coquitlam’s town centre fire hall.
