Narrative
Describe in detail what happened including the concern or potential issue, the environment (weather, terrain, fire behavior, etc), and the resulting health issue.
When on the fireline radio communications to dispatch were unavailable. The only repeater available did not provide consistent readable transmissions and had five other fires utilizing it.
Immediate Action Taken
Reporting Individual : please describe actions you took to correct or mitigate the unsafe/unhealthful event.
With no radio communications I communicated with dispatch via cell phone. A BLM repeater placed in southern Carter County would greatly help with communications to dispatch.
