6:01 pm
wild land and urban areas faces. many of the most destructive fires happened in that environment and people that we talked to are aware of the similar conditions and how the evacuation plan failed. >> i skipped the 911 process, because 911 doesn't get people to you quickly. >> reporter: fire leaders today met in morgan hill to begin the first step in evaluating fire operations, including evacuation processes in light of what they've learned from recent fires, where they acknowledged the faster fire danger requires earlier notification and evacuation. >> we were starting to ask ourselves questions about how can we improve that reverse 911 component. is there a way for us to systematically message the community? and have an evacuation component with that. >> reporter: and cal fire wants more public education programs so people can learn to evacuate themselves.
6:02 pm
>> we talk about our evacuation process and what we would do. i also know, as prepared as we could be, it would still be a very, very dangerous, scary situation. >> reporter: and that's certainly why cal fire knows working with all the roqlocal f agencies will be so crucial. and today was just the first step in what could be a long, necessary reevaluation. robert handa, nbc bay area news. >> it could be life-changing decisions there. state legislators are demanding regulators require pg&e to inspect all its transmission lines in wildfire areas. investigators say a steel hook on the old tower snapped, causing a high voltage power line to spark near paradise.

6:04 pm
make sure the plane doesn't slide too far. all of the 117 passengers and crew members on board walked off safely. no injuries. scott budman will have more on today's harrowing landing in about 25 minutes. but we want to talk about this special technology. let's bring in stephen stock. you are also an aviation expert. tell us about this. >> it's been around 20 years. they're called arrester beds or technically, engineered material arresting systems. e-mas for short. they are suspended over the ground by metal latticework. it's designed to collapse as an airplane runs over them to slowly and safely stop airplanes that overshoot the runway. >> this plane was already landing. almost coming to a stop. would the material be able to stop a plane moving at a high are rate higher rate of speed? >> absolutely. they designed to stop a plane at
6:05 pm
up to 80 miles per hour. they're very effective. >> in burbank, this was especially necessary. they had an incident a while back. >> back in 2000, another southwest plane overshot the exact same runway. this material was not there of course. that airplane went offer t the runway, through a fence and onto an active highway. nobody was injured. but less than two years after that incident, burbank installed this system to do exactly what it did today, stop the plane that overshoots the runway. >> what about here in the bay area, do any of the airports have the same technology? >> they do. the system is relatively new, only about 20 years old, installed in 106 runways at 63 different airports including sfo and oakland where the runways are not long enough, some of them, to allow a 1,000-foot extra deceleration extension to
6:06 pm
be added. because of that, these airports are landlocked. this system had to be used and installed. in the last couple of years, since 1999, 13 different airports, including jfk, three different times, had used this system all without any injuries and just stopping the plane. so far it hasn't been used at sfo and oakland yet. >> what about san jose? >> san jose's are long enough, essentially to meet the standards, and their planes don't need that extra thousand feet. so the extra length on the airport is already there, so they don't need the system. >> good information. we'll have more on that flight coming in about 25 minutes. it's a somber milestone here that divided the community nearly ten years ago. a police officer shot and killed 22-year-old oscar grant of oakland. it's reopening deep wounds in the community. b.a.r.t. has hired an artist now to paint a mural of grant at the station where he was killed.

6:09 pm
and it's very hurtful to me. >> reporter: this morning at the b.a.r.t. board of directors meeting debra allen apologized for the response to her post but not for the post it seveself. it is a long process that will cost nearly $500,000. melissa colorado, nbc bay area news. the family of a man who died in a shootout with police in san francisco at a barbershop is suing the city for wrongful death. the extended family of jahad eads gathered. instead of de-escalating the situation, officers fired a dozen shots. they say eads fired at them first. >> the eads family has long roots in san francisco.

6:11 pm
