DENVER (AP) Colorado firefighters say they are still having trouble contacting other firefighters and agencies because their radios are not compatible.
Black Forest Fire Department chief Bob Harvey told the Colorado Legislature's Wildfire Matters Review Committee on Monday that he had to have two radios while battling a fire that destroyed 486 homes in June.
The Durango Herald Reports the problem has been going on for a decade after the state converted to a digital radio system to help local agencies communicate and ran out of money.
