Emergency Radio Communications

Emergency radio communications are performed by a team of volunteer amateur radio operators who provide essential communications when traditional methods (landline phones, mobile phones, and internet) are compromised due to emergency or natural disaster.









Voice and email communications are performed using amateur radio (HF, VHF, and UHF) to establish contacts and transfer messages among:

  • The three Langford firehalls
  • Langford’s Emergency Program Coordinator (EPC)
  • Emergency Management BC (EMBC)
  • Other municipal Emergency Operations Centers (EOCs)
  • Amateur radio operators in the community

Langford Emergency Radio Communication members meet weekly throughout the year on Wednesday nights, on the air and at Station No. 2  at 6:00 p.m. Exercises in message handling and passing using various modes of radio operation (analog and digital) are performed.

If you are interested in amateur radio and would like to use your hobby to help with community emergency communications, please phone the Amateur Radio Communications Coordinator at 250-478-8118 and leave a message or send an email to You do not have to have an amateur radio certificate but you must be willing to work on obtaining one. We can help you with that! It’s a great way to enjoy the hobby while serving the community.
