We'll cover how El Dorado County's Neighborhood Radio Watch program was developed in response to this threat, and provide examples of how this service was used during the 2021 Caldor Fire and the December 2021 "Snowmageddon" winter snow storm/power outage that affected residents for weeks into January.
