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.

bluemeadow, the Blackhawk is not here yet. The shoot is at the top of the mountain, but I believe it will be landing in our parking lot at Bear Mtn. I think he arrives tomorrow or Wednesday, shooting through the end of the week.

There are also OHV Volunteers for the USFS. These fine people patrol our forest service roads often finding an destroying illegal fire pits, putting out deserted campfires, educating campers about illegal campfires and seeing that they are put out.

Thanks Forest, good to know.

There is a large volunteer presence, Big Bear Valley Citizens on Patrol. They are recruiting now. They can be hampered sometimes by their controllers but for the most part these guys/gals rule.

Do we know what film shoot at Bear Mountain, I can hear the helicopter, but did not see it though.

Aug 19 : 12:15pm
I personally don't see the same police presence as I did even a few years ago. Is there a volunteer service in place? I know volunteers can't do much, but eye's and ears are invaluable. Without the bodies needed to respond, guess it wouldn't work.

(Paranoid-conspiracy-theory Sidenote:
Like our Sheriff dept. if we had very low crime rate for one year, why would they increase their budget? Possibly, a quota of instances must be met. It's a thin line game the big cheese's are playing w/our safety.)
Soap box 📦 done!

I didn't know campfires were allowed at all out here. On the Eastern side of the country, they are allowed. People even burn debris in large piles in their backyards in Tennessee. Here, it lacks the humidity where a fire can easily get out of hand.

If it is due to budget cuts for their man hours, one would think a 2nd shift or overtime for rangers is much more cost effective than the resources it takes to fight a wildfire.

Went Yellow Post Camping Saturday... Ranger drove around and stopped at each spot explaining as of Tuesday no more camp fires.... So, kind of a boring evening sitting around with no fire... However every other visible spot had a raging camp fire... No Ranger to be seen from dusk til dawn... Would it not make more sense to be patrolling in the evening...

FYI, there's a film shoot going on at Bear Mountain this week that will include a real Blackhawk helicopter. You may see it buzzing around the Valley & Moonridge.

Packrats probably..

The rabbits 🐇 around here don't know what to make of carrots, go figure, the muskrats (?) eat them all up.

That's terrible, Hit n run non injury Lake Arrowhead.

Hey that giant tame gopher snake resident I have will tremble it's tail tip if startled. I laugh, wanna-be!
