Dicen que estaban obsoletos y han decidido mejorar los equipos de comunicaciones de sus 12 centros de Salvamento, el argumento de su ministro es irrefutable, “The safety of Canadians and mariners is the top priority of the Canadian Coast Guard,” nota de prensa en ingles
The Canadian Coast Guard is modernizing and consolidating its Marine Communications and Traffic Services into twelve centres across the country with state-of-the-art technology so that they can be better interconnected. The modernized centres will be able to seamlessly pick up any calls from other connected facilities. Some facilities will also increase their areas of responsibility and will receive additional staff and resources accordingly. As a result, the Coast Guard will be able to consolidate services into these better centres and close those with outdated technology. All of the radio towers and radar facilities will remain where they are to maintain the current level of coverage.
