Ken Kehmna, Ret. Chief, Santa Clara County Fire Department

As a first responder and emergency manager, I have lost countless hours of sleep worrying about my own community and wondering if I was doing everything I could to keep them safe. Every fire season I watched as the scale of devastation grew throughout the western United States with each successive wildfire. Every year, wildfire consumed more acreage, destroyed more homes, and took more lives; setting new records for devastation along the way. I came to Genasys, because 40 years ago I dedicated my life to helping others and keeping my community safe. Though I no longer wear the badge, that commitment is unchanged. I believe in the work we are doing, and that Genasys Protect-EVAC is a game changer and a tool that truly makes communities safer.
