Temporary Cell Phone Site Helps Firefighters At North Mountain

Sponsored by:

Groveland, Ca — In an effort to help the firefighters battling the North Mountain Fire in South Tuolumne County, Golden State Cellular has set up a temporary cell cite at the fire camp at Drew Meadow.

The Cell On Wheels (COW) provides coverage to the remote areas where firefighters are stationed.

Golden State Marketing and Communications Director Darrell Slocum says the company will maintain the site until full containment of the fire is announced.

The North Mountain Fire is currently over 2,700 acres and listed as 70% contained.

The cell tower is beneficial for personnel with Golden State, Sprint or Verizon phones.
