The Solar Emergency WiFi pilot would provide WiFi communications to all residents during a major disaster or power outage, allowing first responders to communicate with each other and residents, using voice, video, and text messaging. This pilot would be tested along all five miles of Mandeville Canyon, in Council District 11, where mass evacuation drills are conducted and where the Department has a clear understanding of the issues and shortcomings resulting from these drills.
