Public Safety Equipment is Being Upgraded Across Manitoba.


During a visit to Flin Flon yesterday Premier Brian Pallister said Bell Mobility will be replacing the province’s public safety communications service.  He said the current system is so old they’ve been purchasing parts on ebay so it will be replaced over three years. He explained if we have a mine disaster of a fire and we’ve got paramedics or fire fighters out there in the bush trying to work or police and various emergency people they’ve got to be able to communicate with each other for their own safety but also so they can facilitate doing a better job protecting the rest of us so this system is an upgrade that will allow better range of service, better clarity, better reliability, better messaging capacity and also inter-operability so all the agencies will be able to work together.


 Pallister added five additional telecommunications towers will be added to expand coverage in northern Manitoba and mobile towers will be available to provide additional coverage where needed during emergencies.
