Wildfire Cameras Installed in Several San Mateo County Locations

Thanks to sponsorship from CAL FIRE, PGE, and local fire agencies, ALERTWildfire has installed several wildfire cameras in strategic locations throughout San Mateo county and the western United States.

ALERTWildfire is a consortium of three universities -- The University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), University of California San Diego (UCSD), and the University of Oregon (UO) -- providing access to state-of-the-art Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) fire cameras and associated tools to help firefighters and first responders: (1) discover/locate/confirm fire ignition, (2) quickly scale fire resources up or down appropriately, (3) monitor fire behavior through containment, (4) during firestorms, help evacuations through enhanced situational awareness, and (5) ensure contained fires are monitored appropriately through their demise.
