QB emergency preparation

EMERGENCY PREP: Frank Gibbons, with the Oceanside Emergency Communication Team, was on hand at the Qualicum Beach emergency preparation event last Friday with municipal and regional governments and other local emergency services working together as part of National Emergency Preparedness Week (May 4-10). Gibbons sent an e-mail to The NEWS through a ham radio, routed through stations on Texada Island and in Germany. The scattered infrastructure means it is unlikely to be stopped by a disaster. - Auren Ruvinsky photo
