Meeting with City
Ralph & Eric met with Rita Clarkson the city's ESS Coordinator and also the director for leisure services. We reviewed the Tour de White Rock 3 day bike event and how we could provide more help next year. Rita was quite pleased with the help we did bring earlier this year and is looking forward to our help next year. We discussed some support roles for club members including providing some training on radio use to her volunteers and providing the technical expertise to her with the commercial equipment they use. Club members will be able to take on a few information passing tasks next year as well.
We then briefly discussed ESS support and how we can help her meet her mandate for the city. She has some reception centre staff training sessions planned and she would like us to come by to meet the people and demonstrate how we can support the team. She was encouraged to hear that we have some equipment proposals for the city emergency communication infrastructure.
