Santa Cruz Consolidated Emergency Communications Center (9-1-1) has launched a new Emergency Notification system which can be used by center staff to send important messages to residents and businesses within Santa Cruz County. The system has the capability of sending thousands of messages in a very short time based on geographic location of the incident.
The following video was taken by John Bridges, a firefighter with Boulder Creek fire. It was taken on 22 May, 2008 at the Summit fire in Santa Cruz County, on Summit Road near Maymens Flat Road at about 10 pm. The fire had just blown up again and was spotting in all directions.
