Exercise Coastal Response 2016
As you may be aware the provincial government is conducting an earthquake exercise Coastal Response 2016 on June 6-10, 2016. Coastal Response 2016 was created to test the BC Government’s Earthquake Immediate Response Plan.
On Monday, June 6, there will be a final communications check throughout the day and this will also be the staging day when all the assets are moved into place. The trunk may be used on other days but the urgency will definitely be on June 7 since there are no other communication paths except Satellite.
When using the ITS during the exercise, please listen first so you don’t interfere with exercise traffic and when in a QSO, please leave a break between transmissions so stations with priority exercise traffic may break in and clear their traffic.
