Media Advisory – Test Fire Calls – TESTS CONCLUDED

Today’s fire-hall alerting tests by E-Comm successfully concluded at 1450hrs.

Today, Monday, November 3, 2008 between the hours of 0830hrs and 1200hrs, E-Comm technical specialists will be conducting multiple TESTS of a new fire-hall alerting system. Tests are scheduled to end at 1200hrs but may be extended into the afternoon. Newsrooms will be advised when the tests have concluded.

The easiest way to recognize a TEST call is it will be broadcast over the air in an automated, computerized voice. In addition, TEST calls are NOT broadcast on dispatch channels.

TESTS will be conducted for halls in New Westminster, Delta, Port Moody, Richmond, Vancouver and Squamish. Some paging tests will be conducted for the Sunshine Coast.
