Cell towers and wireless antennas pose fire risks. 

More transmitting cell antennas in a community will increase the fire danger/risk. 5G/4G wireless facilities bring industrial equipment with electrical equipment into residential neighborhoods. Poles loaded with electrical equipment bring fire risks. Yet, telecom and the power companies are largely unregulated with minimal oversight in regards to fire risk. (More 5G Risks at EHT’s Facts about 5G.

Many fires have been started by cell antennas and from equipment on utility poles, some at schools.  Most notably, Malibu Canyon Fire started as the result of three telecoms overloading a utility pole and “Southern California Edison Co. agreed Monday to pay $37 million to resolve concerns about three overloaded utility poles that sparked the 2007 Malibu Canyon fire, a settlement that would bring the total payout for the destructive fire to more than $60 million.” Stay updated with the latest news by signing up for Environmental Health Trust’s newsletter. 

In addition to fire risk, 5G will increase ambient levels of wireless radiofrequency radiation. Peer-reviewed research has demonstrated a myriad of adverse effects from wireless radiofrequency radiation including increased brain cancer, DNA damage, oxidative stress, immune dysfunctionaltered brain development, damaged reproduction, sleep changes, hyperactivity, and memory damage.
