Exercise Handshake (Monthly)
Occurring the last Tuesday of each month at 7PM
Exercise Handshake is a monthly exercise held on the last Tuesday of each month. The exercise started in December 2008 and has continuously been active every month since.
The exercise started as a way for agencies across Nova Scotia to test out their new TMR radio system without being in a real emergency. This way everyone would get an opportunity to test the radios, get comfortable using them and finding any problems so they can be fixed and ready for real emergencies.
Amateur radio was also asked to take part in the exercise so that amateurs would be ready to run EMO communications at local EMO’s if needed.
