KERN COUNTY, Calif., The Kern County Fire Department (KCFD) is pleased to share an overview of efforts to improve firefighting capabilities and response times. From its inception, the KCFD has looked to emerging technologies to improve the level of service it provides. From shortwave radios used in the 1930s to our helicopter pilots now completing night flights utilizing Night Vision Goggles, technology has been a game changer.
The newest technology is no less groundbreaking! Local media is invited to attend a technology showcase, Thursday at 10:30 am. New Public Safety technology featured will include video walls, evacuation management software, and Artificial Intelligence (AI). RSVP before 9am Thursday morning by calling 661-330-0133.
