The High Park Fire is a reminder of how important communication is between law enforcement and residents, especially when it comes to evacuations. Lafayette is experimenting with a new approach to stay in touch. The city is participating in a social network specifically for residents, called Nextdoor. The impetus wasn’t fire, but a package bomb that went off in January. Ryan Warner talks with Lafayette councilman Steve Kracha. You can see a demo of the social network here.
