K Deck (digital) is for non-hazard calls, basically anything that wouldn't require an SCBA or other PPE equipment that would cause a change in communications ability. Any hazard call, that poses a higher than normal risk (hazard) and requires the use of PPE (SCBA, turnout gear, etc) will be placed on analog simplex to communicate as previously stated by everyone else here.

The far west departments simply cant afford the equipment, and as you suspected, coverage isn't the best out there. RWC would need to build out there some more (Simulcast B for sure) to extend coverage farther west. I think it was discussed in November's meeting - though I'm not 100% sure on that.
