Resuming Wireless Communications to Aid Rescue Efforts in Portugal's Forest Fires

One of Portugal’s deadliest forest fires broke out on Saturday 17th June 2017 in the central municipality of Pedrógão Grande before spreading to neighboring areas including Góis, Pampilhosa da Serra and Arganil. It was finally brought under control on 22nd June but with a tragic loss of life and injuries.

When commercial and TETRA wireless networks went down in the affected areas, it cut off village residents and hampered efforts of the fire and rescue services. Based in Portugal, Cliff Velosa on behalf of Comba Telecom, took part in setting up temporary communication networks in the affected area to reconnect residents and emergency services. 

Given that Comba’s repeater, donor and panel antenna were already in stock, Drivetel, Comba’s partner, and one of the mobile operators (MNO) were able to work with Cliff as a team to pull together a fully integrated portable repeater onsite. They succeeded in restoring voice communications at a rapid deployment time despite logistics challenge of transporting the repeater station from Lisbon to rural areas and coordinating with the RF Planning team that took some time. 

Comba’s remote wireless solution gave a perspective of improving communication tools with ability to provide "mission critical" communications between emergency services and first responders to operators and local governments.
