Emergency communication in the CRD relies on 2m simplex.

The CRERCC website containing a table of frequenceies is available here: [1]

The following simplex frequencies pertain to UVic (no tone, no offset):

  • Saanich Emergency Program: VE7SEP 146.565 MHz
  • Oak Bay Emergency Program: VE7OEP 146.445 MHz

In the event of an emergency, UVic should reach out to either emergency program on the above two frequencies. This is because UVic is divided between Saanich and Oak Bay municipality lines. It would not be appropriate to reach out to another emergency program on the CRERCC list [2]. Once Saanich or Oak Bay is contacted, further instructions would be provided on how to pass emergency traffic.
