Observe the Amateur Radio operators of your community as we participate in the North American-wide Field Day event

Starting 1400 EDT, Saturday, June 22rd to 1400 EDT, Sunday 23rd. This year PARC will be

operating from the Flower City Community Campus
 

Amateur Radio operators provide a critical public service for our community; during times of

disaster, we can provide reliable communications when the normal infrastructure is offline.

Licensed by Innovation, Science and Economic Canada (ISED) and trained in the art and science

of radio communication and basic electronics theory, we own and maintain our own

communications equipment and make it available, free of charge, in support of our community.

Amateur Radio clubs, such as PARC, have established working relationships with community,

provincial and national organizations to provide support in case of need under the umbrella of our

national organization, Radio Amateurs of Canada (RAC). PARC works with the Region of Peel,

City of Brampton, Town of Caledon, Canadian Red Cross, St., John Ambulance, and the William

Osler Health System, among others.

 

A prime example of this emergency community was the essential role of Amateur Radio operators

in enabling communications in Puerto Rice after last fall’s destruction from Hurricane Maria.

Many Amateur Radio operators act as severe weather spotters for Environment and Climate

Change Canada (ECCC) under its CANWARN program. Emergency Management Ontario’s

Provincial Emergency Operations Centre (PEOC), within the Ministry of the Solicitor General,

maintains an amateur radio station to provide backup communication across the province.
