AlertWildfire.org and Big Bear Mountain Resorts have partnered to bring several fire cameras to the Big Bear area. These cameras act like virtual fire lookouts in that they're located on high places with great views of the surrounding area. The cameras can be panned, tilted and zoomed to locations to look for smoke from fires. The first Big Bear camera went live this morning: [Click Here]
It's the very first camera in the thumbnail view of cameras: Bear Peak South.

For those not familiar with AlertWildfire cameras, if you click on the image above the words "Bear Peak South", that will bring that camera view up in the large image at the top left of the page. If you right click on that large image, you can view a time lapse from that camera. On the upper right side of the page, you'll see a map view with a shaded triangle showing the area where the camera is looking at the moment. This camera is located on Bear Peak (for the skiers/snowboarders, it's the top of Geronimo). Over the coming weeks, we'll be installing many more cameras at both Bear Mountain and Snow Summit.

Don't blame me! I was left unsupervised!

Thanks for this information, Cammy!

3 more cameras were just added to the page! [Click Here]
The camera named Bear Peak South2 rotates every few seconds to provide a 360 degree view from the top of Bear Peak/Geronimo and is located right next to the other AlertWildfire camera we installed up there a few weeks back.
The Bear Peak North camera is also at the top of Bear Peak/Geronimo and looks over the Big Bear Valley from about the dam to Sugarloaf Mountain.
The Bear Mtn South camera is located right next to Ben's San Gorgonio Wilderness cam: [Click Here]

Next up on the install list are some cameras over at Snow Summit!

As far as BVES wiring goes, up here in Surgarloaf it looks like something out of the 1800's with wires running every which way, My house is fed from a spice off of wires down the middle of the street. I would much prefer if it all was underground.

I'll try to find the legal discussion on this and repost it here.

Naw, it's specific to the threat, could be anywhere from hours to days. In our area it would generally be less than 24 hrs. Up in norcal they had had a multiday event so the outage duration followed.

This is not just a few hours folks. The new law prescribes very specific actions that a power company must follow once they've shut down. None of those actions can take place in a few hours- more like a few days.

ButlerPeakFire - What took them so long to getting around to figuring out they needed to upgrade their system to be less prone to starting fires during conditions that we've been seeing, well....forever?

BVS follows SCE standards and works with the same contract design firms. Mine being one of them. They are currently starting to upgrade their systems for covered conductor. This should help strengthen their system against outages and phase to phase arcing that can create wildfires.

Yeah, it's all more or less the same thing... thankfully, we don't get the real strong Santa ana winds as in the valleys, passes and canyons.

Oh, I forgot about BVES. Thsts the same thing Edison has going. I think its being mandated by the PUC. Two weeks ago Edison had lots of warnings and some turn offs. This week there are warnings but not in this area. Some in San Berdo though.

We're not SCE, we're Bear Valley Electric Service (Big Bear Valley). This is the new standard to try and prevent the ignition of wildfires during times of high fire danger.

It's a proactive approach to protect life & property. [Click Here]

0n the Edison outage information web page, I dont see any of our nearby areas currently being considered for wind related shutdowns. Am I wrong.

I am a bit concerned that people are "normalizing" the behavior of the power company's potential shutdown of our power by comparing that to TRUE preparedness for disasters! This is a power company created crisis, NOT a natural disaster.

Remember we went through this same fire drill less than a week ago and power wasn't cut, this will be a weaker Santa Ana event, so I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. Always be prepared just in case!

I'll think you'll be ok for a few hours if you plan ahead... Imagine a winter storm with trees down again that takes the power out for days. At least this you can see coming and prepare for.

Boots, do you have a generator?

BootsNBridles
Oct 18 : 06:49pm
being prepared for those other things is not the same as cutting power if you have a well and livestock to water!!
