Community Service


Don Valley REACT Inc. is a not for profit organization, a registered charity (with C.R.A.), which is financed solely by the donations it receives.  All of its members are volunteers who donate part of their free time to serve the community.


REACT was originally established to provide assistance to stranded motorists using Citizens Band Radio.  However, Don Valley REACT has grown well beyond this initial CB role.  DVR now provides organisational and communication services that focus on safety, at local community events.  These services are provided using licensed V.H.F. radios, long range repeaters(#), pagers, cellular phones, computers and other up to date tools.  All in order to provide communications within the groups, events and to and from appropriate authorities,  emergency services and others.                           (#) - [provided by Maloron Communications Ltd.]


Actual assistance has included providing support services for the York Regional Police,  Metropolitan Toronto Police, Ontario Provincial Police and Peel Regional Police forces.  Don Valley REACT members provide assistance regularly to various other authorities, services, and operations in York Region.


The skills and efforts of the professionals providing emergency and policing services are in no way to be hindered by DV REACT assistance or activities.  It is DV REACT's mandate to help in anyway possible when asked / requested.  During routine daily activities, the members are attentive to those in need of assistance.


An important item to note about DVR, it is a communications team that communicates, constantly and consistently, on an almost daily basis.  The DVR Team is made up of a group of diverse individuals with a wide variety of talents that mesh and blend very well together.


DVR has received much positive recognition, accolades, from many quarters, groups and authorities, in the communities we serve, which gives us much pride, and, the satisfaction of appreciated involvement and achievement.



Skills & Training


Members still do monitor Citizen Band Radio Emergency channel 9 in the interest of public safety.  V.H.F. (private band, licensed) mobile radio is most often used.  These have reach to a communication area bounded roughly by Guelph on the west, Orillia (north), Oshawa (east) and Metropolitan Toronto (south).  Members also have cellular phones, pagers, computers and some are licensed and equipped Amateur Radio Operators.


Don Valley REACT has access to four wheel drive vehicles to reach remote areas.  All vehicles are equipped with various types of emergency lighting, flares, road cones, fire extinguishers and other equipment required for safety, visibility and accident prevention when providing assistance.  Vehicles also carry a full complement of first aid equipment and supplies.


All members have current First Aid / CPR training.  Furthermore, some members have PAD (Public Access Defibrillation), EMT (Emergency Medical Technician), BTLS (Basic Trauma Life Support), and / or oxygen administration qualification.  All members are trained in Red Cross Registration and Inquiry, with some members trained to the Disaster Response Team Level.  Most members have acquired an advanced knowledge of computer systems.


DVR members have a working knowledge of the Ontario Provincial Police Communications Centre, the 911 Communications and Dispatch Centre of Metropolitan Toronto and its' Emergency Measures Planning area.



Proudly Canadian Team
