A county in northern California is updating its security measures. The county is working to expand emergency communications within its Office of Emergency Services (EOS).

The EOS is responsible for coordinating with County departments, local cities and special districts to mitigate against, prepare for, respond to and recover from disasters.

The county purchased call boxes from Knightscope with satellite telecommunications to serve remote recreation areas at a local state park in the Sierra Nevada mountains. 

Call boxes have helped the county in the past, providing ways for people to call for help in the event of an emergency.
