Lack of Radio Link Raises Deadly Peril

It's 6 p.m. on a busy Friday night at Fire Station No. 9 in downtown Los Angeles. When the alarm rings, a truck races out the doors to a hotel fire. Before the engine pulls up to the burning building, city Fire Capt. Carlos Calvio keys the mike on a two-way radio and quickly checks in with the Police Department, which also has sent officers to the location.
