Schellenger Road Communications Tower




Schellenger Road Communications Tower

In partnership with Northern Sonoma County Community Emergency Response Team (“CERT”), Northern Sonoma County Fire – Cloverdale & Geyserville, Fireball Information Technologies, a selected group of Sonoma County radio communications leaders, North Bay Area Mesh (NBAM), Krasisla Pacific Farms, and Sonoma County Public Infrastructure the first grassroots installation of a communications tower is now a reality!

All about community resiliency and preparedness

Located east of the City of Cloverdale, the General Mobile Radio Service (GMRS) repeater makes it possible to communicate with the Graton and Geyserville Fire Stations, Fitch Mountain, and areas of Petaluma, Knights Valley, Hopland, and Ukiah during emergencies.

The North Bay Area Mesh (NBAM) mesh is a fail-safe, digital communications network run by licensed amateur radio operators. It is designed expressly to strengthen emergency communications for disaster responders, fire stations, local police, and volunteer amateur radio operators. The mesh is a regional intranet and does not connect to the internet.

The fire cameras are part of a remote wildfire early detection system and overlook both incorporated and unincorporated Cloverdale, the County of Mendocino’s southern border, the City of Healdsburg, and the Town of Windsor.

The tower, upon completion, will host essential communications infrastructure, cameras, and a weather station.
