Business Arising:

1) FM emergency broadcasting: Brian Hatfield presented a proposal submitted by Radio Sarnia-Lambton that during a period of emergency 1070 CHOK will provide continued information with both of their FM stations providing regular updates. They propose that CAER would be responsible for reimbursement of lost revenue to CHOK should the continued broadcast interfere with client contracts. The working committee would like the service to be on a "user pay" basis and ask for a breakdown of costs for 24 hours. Members would like to know if St. Clair Twp. EOC would be included in the process of the broadcast. The proposal will be submitted to the CAER Board at the next committee meeting on January 26, 2004. Action Item Brian Hatfield.
