E-Comm Board Chair Doug Campbell highlights 2018 achievements at the AGM on June 20.

Messages of accomplishment and appreciation for the dedication of our staff and partners were highlighted in E-Comm Board Chair Doug Campbell’s speech at the organization’s Annual General Meeting, held June 20 in the lobby of E-Comm’s Lower Mainland Emergency Communications Centre.

From readying the new 9-1-1/police dispatch centre on southern Vancouver Island to completing all the agency transitions to the new E-Comm next generation radio system, 2018 was a year of new beginnings for our organization.

On the completion of the new South Island 9-1-1/Police Dispatch Centre, Campbell said, “a project this multifaceted takes years of planning and work, and I’d like to thank our staff and our Vancouver Island partners for their extraordinary effort in conceiving, building and opening the centre.” He also praised E-Comm’s Technology and Wireless teams and police, fire and ambulance partners in the Lower Mainland for their efforts in completing the Next Generation Radio Program in 2018 and shutting down the legacy radio network, which was implemented in 1999. Police, firefighters and ambulance paramedics use the E-Comm radio network to communicate their essential messages.
