IMPORTANT NOTICE TO RESOURCE ROAD USERS
A province wide, safety-oriented project is underway to standardize two-way radio communications on forest service roads and some resource roads. This project includes
standardized signage, new dedicated resource road radio channels and standardized call procedures.
The Thompson Rivers Forest District along with other districts in the Southern and Northern Interior will begin implementing new resource road radio channels commencing on May 4, 2015. Districts on the Coast and in the Cariboo have already transitioned or are currently transitioning.
Forest industry workers and other road users using mobile radios must have their radios reprogrammed to incorporate the new resource road channels.
It is recommended that road users retain current radio frequencies until they are sure they are no longer required.
New signs posted on local resource roads indicate which radio channel to use and the calling interval, with drivers required to indicate their direction of travel and their vehicle type. Drivers using mobile radios must call according to the posted channels and call protocols.
All road users are reminded that forest service roads are not radio-controlled, but radio-assisted. All users should drive safely and according to road and weather conditions.
It is strongly recommended that all resource road users exercise additional caution during this transition period.
Local resource road safety committees have worked together to implement these changes. More information (including radio communications protocols, radio channels,
maps and standardized signs) is available online at:
