- CAL FIRE Chalk Mountain Communications Tower and Facilities Replacement Project
- The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) proposes to construct and operate replacement facilities at its existing Chalk Mountain communications facility. The objective of the project is to upgrade CAL FIRE’s telecommunications infrastructure to digital technology to continue to provide an essential emergency communications linkage for CAL FIRE’s fire protection and emergency response command and control in portions of Santa Cruz and San Mateo Counties. Specifically, CAL FIRE proposes to install an up to 80-foot tall replacement telecommunications tower with MIMO technology equipment, very high frequency (VHF) and ultra-high frequency (UHF) radios with associated antennas, and supporting facilities. CAL FIRE would remove existing outdated supporting facilities, as well as a 35-foot-tall emergency repeater that was temporarily installed when the existing 60-foot wood pole burned in the CZU August Lightning Complex fire in 2020. Construction would begin in 2023.
