    Hurricanes, fires, floods, and earthquakes happen, but you can count on amateur (or ham) radio to provide vital links to agencies and city services such as fire, police and ambulance.

    On Tuesday, March 20 from 2-4 p.m., join the Surrey Museum and the Surrey Emergency Program Amateur Radio Society (SEPAR) in an amateur radio emergency communications workshop for kids. The workshop will focus on how amateur radio provides communities with emergency communications when commercial systems are not operational.

    The workshop will provide kids with a hands-on experience of how amateur radio systems work and the technology used. (For ages nine and over. Admission is free. Space is limited so please pre-register by calling 604-592-6956. Held at the Surrey Museum, 17710 56A Ave.).
