BVI participants complete VHF radio operator course

VHF radio operator certificate course participants recently carried out a field exercise in Road Town, Tortola, in which they had to coordinate a multi-agency response to an emergency. Eighteen people in the BVI have now completed the first in a series of VHF radio courses planned for 2019. The course is offered annually by the Department of Disaster Management and it covers radio communications technology, safety equipment, land mobile radio operation and practices for use during emergencies, as well as day-to-day operations by a number of emergency response agencies.
