Dear Local Residents of Big Sur-
I’m not telling any of you something you don’t already know when I state two things :
1. The winter of 2008 / 2009 has the potential to be a once in a life time challenge of epic proportions .
2. If you thought martial law during the fire was no fun, imagine the mayhem of sneaking around slides and floods this winter with deputies from Salinas insisting you stay on your property or face arrest.
For those reasons alone, myself and a few others in the Community have been exploring the idea of creating a Community based response team that would be able to participate in the Incident Command System in the event of a declared Emergency.
The Meeting is scheduled for 6 PM, Thursday Sept. 18 TH @ Big Sur Lodge Conference Center. Robert Clyburn from County Emergency Services will outline the steps and training necessary to become certified and a sign up sheet for team members will be available.
In order to get this off the ground we will need to get organized and trained quickly. At the meeting we will go over how best to accomplish an aggressive team certification process and answer any questions regarding this organizations roles and responsibilities.
Feel free to invite other full time community members that share an interest in being part of the solution to this meeting.
