The installation of an emergency communications mono-pole in Highrock Park took place May 15th. The mono-pole was airlifted by helicopter in sections and placed on conjunction with a ground team. Significant system work will now be completed behind the scenes in preparation for testing the first phase of the new HRO/P25 system later this summer, prior to going live later in 2017. 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.
CREST is very grateful for the cooperation and patience of the residents and park visitors throughout this important project. A $25,000 amenity contribution has been made by CREST to the Township of Esquimalt for park improvements in Highrock Park.
