Fire cameras are located throughout the region on mountain tops and other key locations, streaming real-time images to firefighters and other emergency management personel, as well as the public.
Seismic sensors throughout the region report on earthquake location, size and depth; additional instruments are being installed to support earthquake early warning (EEW) at Tahoe.
Network infrastructure consists of dedicated high-bandwidth microwave radio links managed at NSL. Our system has the capacity for adding new sensors, which are not susceptible to outages by heavy public use during an emergency.
AlertTAHOE is the result of various partnerships and agencies working together to improve monitoring capabilities and disaster response. Read about the history of the project.
