Pitt Meadows firefighters enhance public safety by joining E-Comm’s radio network

Pitt Meadows firefighters are now communicating on the E-Comm Wide-Area Radio Network, after joining the system on September 14, 2021. This transition will enhance the emergency response capabilities of the firefighters, elevating the safety of the entire Pitt Meadows community.

Since joining the network, Pitt Meadows Fire & Rescue Services are now able to seamlessly communicate over the radio with other emergency service agencies including Ridge Meadows RCMP and BC Ambulance Service. This interoperability is critical to public safety as it allows the firefighters to coordinate their response with fellow police, fire and ambulance partners across municipal boundaries who are also communicating on E-Comm’s shared radio network.

Pitt Meadows Fire & Rescue Services joined 16 other fire departments in Metro Vancouver, all police agencies in Metro Vancouver and Abbotsford and BC Emergency Health Services who use the E-Comm Wide-Area Radio Network. The network has about 13,000 activate or available radios. In 2020, firefighters, police officers and paramedics made 53.7 million transmissions on the network.

E-Comm is proud to welcome Pitt Meadows Fire & Rescue Services as a radio partner.
