Cell Towers, Radiation and Public Safety

Hosted by

Since September 11, 2001, LA County and its 88 cities have been talking about connecting every cop and firefighter in a single communications system — in the event of an earthquake or other major disaster. But, with a network in mid-construction, federal funding has been frozen. We hear why, speak with a first responder and get perspective from a cancer researcher.
