Colorado Wildfires Spark Dire Need for Emergency Alert System
A recent wildfire in the mountainous region southwest of Denver, Colorado has claimed at least one life and left a path of destruction.
According to the Associated Press, authorities had to order the local residents of approximately 950 homes to evacuate due to the extreme nature of the wildfire. One sheriff's deputy, who was alerting people via his patrol car was trapped after he ran into a ditch because of the thick smoke - this is where an Emergency Alert System from DialMyCalls would come into play.
Reports say that only one person was found dead in the recent Colorado wildfires but it could have been a lot worse. Had the sheriff's deputy who had been manually alerting residents not been able to contact help via radio, his fate might have been different.
