“Can You Hear Me Now?”

MEDIA RELEASE

“Can you hear me?” “Can you hear me now?”

“Yes, we can hear you!”

Saskatoon Search and Rescue (SSAR) is pleased to announce the completion of our Emergency Communications Project. A reliable communications system is essential during times of crisis or disaster and this project will help SSAR to better serve our community when needed.

The media and supporters of Saskatoon Search and Rescue are invited to join us on Thursday, June 4, at 1:30 pm at Firehall #6 (Acadia Dr. & Taylor St.) to view the project equipment.

Representatives from our two major donors, the Kinsmen Club of Saskatoon and Dakota Dunes Community Development Corporation, will be present to say a few words about why they supported this project. In addition, a representative from the Saskatoon Police Service will explain what this project means to them and our other agencies of jurisdiction.

This project would not have been possible without significant support from others in the community and those businesses, organizations and individuals will also be recognized.
