IMPORTANT FIRE SAFETY REMINDER TO ALL CABIN OWNERS

As members of the Mt. Laguna community cabin and private property owners you are very aware of the high fire danger that threatens the mountain especially at this time of the year. However, others may not have that level of awareness.

Please remind all your visitors and those who use your cabin/home of the danger and ways to avoid causing a fire.  95% of forest fires are started by human activity and often by just plain lack of awareness.  We have had several near misses in the past.

Thanks in advance for taking action to prevent a forest fire.
