Statement of Purpose
In the Radio Communication Regulations pertaining to the Amateur Radio Service rules, Industry Canada has made provisions for emergency communications by Amateur Radio due to the value of the amateur radio service to the public as a voluntary non-commercial service, particularly with respect to providing emergency communications.
The goal of CARG is to provide trained amateur radio operators for emergency communications for municipal, provincial and non-government agencies under the guidance of the CARG Emergency Coordinator (EC) and leadership team. CARG seeks to develop and maintain cooperative relationships with municipal, provincial and non-government agencies (ie. Red Cross) in the Tri-city area.
