99.3 County FM, as an essential service to Prince Edward County, is constantly working to improve upon our ability to serve the residents and visitors of PEC.
As part of our development we launched a survey in the winter to gauge our listener’s readiness and to help stimulate action so that you would be better prepared to keep you and your family safe.
We are now going back to the community to see if people have made significant changes, as well, this remains an excellent opportunity for you to take positive action and learn something new.
It’s been a busy year, on top of dealing with Covid 19 (one NOT on the radar) we have been busy completely reviewing our systems, developing Emergency Handbooks and procedures, and acquiring the tools we need to further improve our abilities. Much of this has been possible due to a contribution from the Community Radio Fund of Canada (CRFC) that allows us to further improve our ability to prepare and respond to public safety issues.
Regardless if you have done the survey before or not, we are looking for your participation in our new Phase 2 of this process. It only takes a few minutes. Thank you for your participation.
