On Research Data in Action: Broadband Support for Disaster Early Warning Systems — Sept Blog Post

Wildfires are ravaging huge swaths of California, Oregon, Washington, and other western states. Link Oregon considers how networking technologies could better support disaster detection efforts. ALERTWildfire is an early detection and warning system designed to help reduce the potentially devastating impact of wildfires.
