Redwood Complex Fire

On Mendocino Works on Wednesday 15 November at 7 p.m., we investigated what caused these cascading outages, asked what you can do to prepare for the next disaster, and exploreed what local firms are doing to improve telecoms in a rural region that the big companies prefer to ignore.
