RICHMOND, BC -The recent spate of earthquakes around the world and widespread building collapses caused by terrorist bombings prompted CON-SPACE COMMUNICATIONS LTD. (CDNX: CCB) to create a Rescue Communication Probe to locate people trapped under fallen structures.

The Rescue Probe is a cylindrical, stainless steel, two-way communication accessory that works with all CON-SPACE Hardline Rescue Systems currently used by Rescue Teams across North America. The Rescue Probe is waterproof and virtually indestructible and promises to increase revenues from the huge Rescue Industry, which includes 31,000 Fire Departments in the United States of America alone. The market for this product is world wide, driven by earthquakes, and terrorist bombing activities.

"We believe that orders for the Rescue Probe are imminent from the highly specialized and ever growing Rescue market", said Mr. Terence A. Ibbetson, President of CON-SPACE. "With renewed earthquake awareness in North America, Turkey and Japan, we see our product being on the top of everyone's list"

CON-SPACE manufactures special voice communication equipment for the Safety Industry. Its equipment is presently used by militaries, government agencies, municipalities, fire departments, police units, rescue teams, and general industry in many countries.
