Our volunteer based society is able to maintain our mandate of providing emergency communications to our local community with the continuing sponsorship and support from the City of Coquitlam. Thank you.
The City of Coquitlam has various grants available to non-profit society such as the COVID-19 Revenue Recovery Grant.
This May 2022, C.A.R.E.S.S. submitted an application and has been awarded a sum (details to follow shortly). These funds will be used to improve our abilities to remotely offer classes (such as obtaining radio licenses), meetings, presentations and other amateur radio related topics over video conferencing by obtaining new audio and video equipment.
This will allow us to expand our audiences and ensure that existing and new members along and anyone interested in amateur radio will be provided with improved remote access.
As a result of the pandemic, it was not possible for many to visit our facilities in person. This grant will enable us to resolve this issue in the future when such a situation arises again.
