Houston firefighters: faulty radios could lead to tragedy
The explosive growth of cell phones and other technologies has made such older systems vulnerable to radio interference
HOUSTON — Firefighters work in the most dangerous of places. Protecting our property and our lives, they walk into burning, smoke-filled buildings.
Here if they get separated or into trouble, their only lifeline to help and safety may be their radio.
That’s why the KHOU 11 New I-Team listened when some Houston firefighters started complaining about a new radio system that the city just put into place. It’s a system that some say could lead to tragedy.
