California Camp Fire:
Dependability in Moments That Matter

Q&A With Travis Boettcher, Regional VP for the West

The California Camp Fire started in Butte County Nov. 8, 2018. It spread rapidly over a two-week period, covering more than 150,000 acres and destroying more than 18,000 structures. It’s impossible to predict when a disaster of this scale will occur. A rapid response was needed by first responders to control the blaze, assist with search and recovery efforts, and most importantly, get those in the fire’s path to safety. The radios and networks they depend on every day are even more important in situations like this and require interoperability as local and national agencies converge on the scene to help.
