    That is the way I understood it. Oh well maybe he could clarify it for the others. i have used my ptt verizon phone on accident senes to contact one of the other members. I also use it to let hiim know if I am responding because he lives a lot closer to the stationthan I do.

    This would seem to indicate that they are using cell phones for operational communications inside a burning structure. Clearly not a matter of "oh, lets see if my phone works while I'm in the middle of a fire."
