Big Sur Multi-Agency Advisory Council Meetings

As Co-Chairs of the Big Sur Multi Agency Advisory Council, Congressman Sam Farr and Supervisor Dave Potter have scheduled two special BSMAAC meetings to discuss the Basin Complex Fire.

The first meeting is scheduled for Monday, August 4th and the second is scheduled for Tuesday, August 12th, and both will be held from 6 to 7:30 pm at the Pfeiffer Big Sur Lodge Conference Center in Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park, Big Sur.

The first meeting, August 4th, will focus on debriefing from the fire – what went well, what didn’t work, what can we improve on?

The second meeting, August 12th, will focus on rebuilding efforts – what services and programs are already in place, what are needed, are there gaps that we need to work on?

Your participation is greatly appreciated. Please park in the lower parking lot and walk up to the conference center.

Thank you for your efforts to help the Big Sur community!

And the fires never end … Telegraph Fire

This may well be remembered as the summer when the fires never end. There have been so many of them, in so many places, it is difficult to keep track. Per our firefighter blog, California has lost over 700,000 acres to fire so far this summer. And folks, we still have 3 months of fire season left!! Rain dances, anyone?

Just as we were being declared contained, another battle looms in Mid-Pines and Mariposa, up near Yosemite. It is the Telegraph Fire. It has already burned 25 homes, 27 outbuildings, and 9 firefighters have been injured, and it is only 10% contained. You can read further details about it from Capt. Mike (Ret) in the firefighters blog in my blog roll to the right.

Here is another source of live feed:

**Sigh** we can only pray that it is contained much faster than ours was, and that there are no further loses. Our hearts are with those in the path of this fire and the fires yet to come.
