Fawnskin No Longer in the Dark!

Courtesy of KBHR:
Night owls noticed that just after 12:00am we were left in the dark. Never mind the loss of street lights, the power across the valley was lost and the head guys at Southern California Edison don’t know what happened.

The transformer failed at the Gold Hill Switching Station. (Baldwin dump area–this location supplies a substantial part of the valley with electricity.) Edison crews worked most of the night until the power was restored shortly after 6am.

Bear Valley Electric Service got power to the hospitals, sheriff’s department and grocery stores via their new generator. This is a good reminder to everyone to be sure to have wind up or battery operated radios and other disaster supplies on hand.

Fire, Fire, NO…NO…NO!
We are officially in fire season. I will get you those emergency numbers to report any violators…like those seen last week in Grout Bay.

–Wood and Charcoal fires are ONLY permitted in designated fire rings at developed sites.
–California Campfire permits are required for all fires (wood charcoal and propane/gas stoves) at yellow post sites. (Get them at any Ranger Station.)
