Presentation Transcript
There is a need to develop a radio call standard for single and multiple users to operate and communicate safely on Resource Roads.
To this end the MOF/BCTS is currently in the process of obtaining radio frequencies which will be available to provide effective coverage to all users while operating on Forest Service Roads (FSRs).
fsr radio mapping procedures
FSR Radio Mapping Procedures
  • The Road Manager will establish the names and numbers for “Main” roads and Branch roads.
  • The Road Manager will select the Point of Commencement (PoC) of each road.
  • The PoC will normally be the log dump, highway connection or other FS road.
  • The kilometre numbering for each branch road off of the main will recommence at Km 0 and be spatially established.

  • Kilometre signs will be installed both ways on the through road, to cover travel in either direction

loading channels
Loading Channels
  • The loading channels are intended to be utilized for communications between truck drivers and loader operators, during loading and unloading situations. They are not to be used while travelling on roads
  • Upon entering a cut block, landing or sort yard the radio channel to be used will be posted along with the worksite operator’s company name.
