Construction on giant cell towers needed to make Los Angeles County’s emergency communication system work has been halted until radiation concerns can be addressed.
Dozens of firefighters came to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday to let them know they do not want cell towers where they work.
“The proximity of the towers and people living next to the towers is of grave concern, but it’s a very complex issue as to how those radio waves affect people all the way up to three miles away,” said Dave Gillotte the president of Los Angeles County Firefighters 1014.
