The installation of an emergency communications mono-pole in Highrock Park took place May 15th with the 27 meter pole being lifted in sections and placed with a helicopter. Highrock Park is an integral part of an extensive technology upgrade to improve emergency response communications across the Capital Region, and will address gaps in first responder communications that currently exist in Esquimalt.
Significant system work will now complete behind the scenes at Highrock Park and across the region in preparation for testing the first phase of the new HRO/P25 system later this summer prior to going live later in 2017. We are very grateful for the cooperation and patience of the residents and park visitors throughout this essential project. CREST has made a $25,000 amenity contribution to the Township of Esquimalt for park improvements in Highrock Park.
