There's been a few "reminders" of the hazards of earth movement. The C.E.R.T. training references the FEMA guidelines which should be reviewed on a regular basis.

[Click Here]

remember, you will be on your own for at least 72 hrs, maybe more. The first item you will run out of is drinking water. Store at least 3 gall (3 days) per person, minimum. Remember to have supplies in your car and carry good walking shoes.

Be ready and be prepared

Great reminder NSA! Its been a bit shaky in our local areas this past few weeks. I am going to go ahead and swap out my backup food and water supply (its a couple years old) and re-check all of the other gear in the EQ kit.

Winter can leave now... Lets try to get above 50 degrees???

Several folks here on SCM were very active in BBVCERT in the 2010-2014 era, but then the momentum more or less came to a screeching halt. I attribute this to the turnover of the board as well as a shrinking active membership base. The local chapter also came out with fairly stringent training requirements to retain membership which for a full time working person is difficult to attain due to the number of hours required to get the certifications. It is unfortunate. We do have a couple folks that sit on the MMA (Mountain Mutual Aid) and COAD (Community Organizations Active in Disaster) teams but that doesn't have the momentum that CERT once had.

HIB, I thought they might go for it earlier last week with those Santa Ana's, though we'll be warming up a bit this weekend. It's still early, however, things look to be getting somewhat cold and unsettled headed into November!

Recommended auto service stations in the Big Bear area? We need to have our Jeep's refrigerant drained from the air conditioner so we can replace the heater core ourselves. Thanks!

Thanks NSA! I did notice that the closure wasn't showing up on the CalTrans feed but then Google placed the closure last night which I thought was weird. Two different automated systems getting two different answers? How is that possible?? My bet is with CalTrans
