Interior Firefighters Supported by CREST this summer:
CREST was asked to supply radios to these units since our radios use VHF multiband and able to work on the same fire frequencies as those used in the interior. Our technical staff were able to respond promptly, programmed the radios appropriately, and then shipped them by air so that they could be deployed seamlessly at that critical time.
It’s affirming to see regional cooperation in action during a crisis. The Vancouver coordinator of this initiative emailed CREST to say “You guys are awesome!”
