Golden State Cellular assists CAL FIRE

Jamestown, California.  Golden State Cellular has
announced recent placement of a temporary cell site, or cell on wheels (COW), at the CAL FIRE Academy in Ione.   As Golden State Cellular is the local area cell service company that provides roaming for Verizon, CAL FIRE made the request as a way to improve Verizon Cellular coverage at the Academy to support a new training program being developed, designed to improve response to hazardous situations.

According to CAL FIRE, the new training course, AAIM, is a CAL FIRE led multi-agency, multi-discipline and federally funded program which will assist Incident Management Teams when dealing with wildland fires and all-hazards emergency incidents locally and nationwide.  Golden State Cellular and CAL FIRE have worked together in the past on COW placement in support of firefighting operations in remote areas.
