Nanaimo, BC – The latest resource road video released this week showcases the correct use of radio calling procedures on resource and forest service roads. As the summer progresses, resource roads are busier than ever with industry and recreational users driving on these roads all across BC. Incidents continue to occur causing great concern for many forestry, oil and gas, government and other users. This 7.5-minute Radio Use and Road Calling Procedures video provides a step-by-step overview of the correct use of radio procedures and details communications protocols between vehicles on resource and forest service roads to support safe passage. This video is the second in the series of Resource Road Safety videos targeted at a broad audience of viewers from industry to the general public.
