Our CPSF Control Centre or JOC is situated in office C102 (entrance between Post Office and Meatworld) in The Park Shopping Centre (previously known as Elardus Park Centre) in Barnard Street.
The JOC is manned 24/7 by community volunteers, during normal working hours at the JOC and after hours from home where members are on stand-by. They are equipped with area maps, two-way radio, cellphones as well as manual with instructions and emergency handling procedures. The JOC Duty officer has communication with the SAPS and all relevant role players and is able to communicate with most emergency services in the area.
Volunteers for 2-hour shifts are given the necessary training required to man the post and are briefed on all aspects of the mainly liaison tasks.
Duty staff will also be briefed on how to handle the 2-way radio for announcements or handling incidents. Observation Skills.
The Roster Coordinator is Katie Heystek and you can phone her on 0725226980 if you are willing to help out with this very important part of our initiative.
