   WHO ARE THE PARTICIPANTS

Our First Responders including Los Angeles
County Fire department including their equipment
for your family to tour. They will also bring the
Shaky Quaky classroom which will demonstrate
how an earthquake will feel. Our L.A. County Sheriff
will be here to inform you about Neighborhood
Watch and the benefits of neighbors helping
neighbors. The Montrose Search and Rescue will
also be here to demonstrate some of their equipment
Utility companies like C V Water, The Gas Company,
a
nd Southern California Edison will be here
to cover safety issues related to their services supplied
to our community.

Vendors will participate offering everything from
food and drink, to Emergency Supplies, like food
and water storage, Fire Retardants and Pool Pumps.
Food Storage will be addressed by a member of the
LDS church.

The format is “Presentation by experts” with the opportunity
to visit their booth for hands on demonstrations
and discussions. A fire extinguisher recharge
vendor has offered to evaluate and recharge
your inventory of home or business units at a deeply
discounted price
In a disaster, the people that surround you – your
neighbors – will be the ones you and your family
turn to for immediate help. And, very likely, they
will turn to you.

The greater the devastation, the more you will
need each other.

Emergency responders such as firefighters, utilities
and healthcare providers will have more calls
than they can handle. In some cases, the facilities
housing them may have been damaged. In others,
travel response times may be increased due to debris
blocking the routes. Emergency responders
may not be able to reach everyone who needs
help in the first few hours, or even days.

A neighborhood that is educated in the proper
emergency response procedures will suffer fewer
serious injuries, less loss of life and reduced property
damage.

Recent events around the world have taught us
the importance of connecting with your neighbor.
It is key to survival.

Mountain Lion attack on an animal was witnessed last night (Thursday) near Pine Glen.  The resident stated that the attack and ruckus took over 30 minutes before it ended. All appropriate agencies were notified but no action deemed appropriate.
The 20 mile range of a Moutain Lion places all of the wildland interface here in the Crescenta Valley at risk.
 


 
Christopher Stone of LA County Public Works announced at the Town Council meeting that after 3 years
the K-Rails are coming out. There are two exceptions: Freeman above Manzanita, and Canyonside above
the 6000 block. The process will begin in June and the cleanup will be completed by July.
All the k-rails in PineCrest will be gone in 2 months as will most of them in Briggs Terrace.
