Ontario and Minnesota Collaborating On Communications Planning

Published on November 03, 2019

I want to thank Craig Marek from EMS Services in Kenora for the invitation to attend and observe a recent exercise in International Falls Minnesota. Emergency Communications and responder support teams were working on simulating situations that to enable cross border, cross-jurisdictional communications for our critical first responders. It was wonderful to see the systems working so smoothly. This is the kind of benefit that Northwestern Ontario will derive from the recently announced Public Radio system enhancements by the Solicitor General in Ontario. Thanks to Craig and Mark and their colleagues from Minnesota for the opportunity to see this teamwork, collaboration and strategic communications planning first hand. Appreciate all that you do to keep our communities safe and secure.
