FIRE SAFE COUNCIL EQUIPMENT USE

The Fire Safe Council needs to charge for equipment use this year due to the added expense of equipment repairs.

  • There will be a $20 charge for the wood splitter.
  • All other equipment will be charged at $10 per item.
The procedure for checkin out equipment remains the same. Call John Wallar at (949) 422-9561 or Chris Kenney at (619) 729-0466 to make arrangements for using the equipment.  A time to pick up the tools will be set up.
 

SDG&E POWERLINE REPLACEMENT PROJECT ON SUNRISE HIGHWAY 

The CPUC and the USFS/CNF have approved the SDG&E Power Line Replacement Project in the Descanso Ranger District. Phase 1 construction will occur along Sunrise Highway from I-8 to Morris Ranch Road.  Eventually the project will include replacement of 1400 existing HV power poles with metal poles. This will affect the USFS and campgrounds and cabins and homes and businesses. 
 
The project will start in December 2017 and last at least 14 months.
