Dear Community,

We are happy to announce that we are finally joining forces with the Survival Center and putting together a gathering for Building Community by helping each other to Map our Neighborhoods. We also would like to discuss important options for communication to each satellite community by using Shortwave/Hamm Radios, CBs, etc.

Please kindly mark your calendars for Saturday, September 27th from 4-6pm at the Survival Center. Please let us know Right Away if you can attend and if you have Shortwave/Ham Radios, CBs, etc.

We are personally creating a community in our area by Mapping our Neighborhood and Gathering Skills & Important Information from each household like who knows First Aid, CPR, Medical Skills, Animal Husbandry, Construction/Building, Gardening, etc Also, who has a Shortwave/Ham Radio, Generator or Energy System to be a Base for Communication. We are setting this up now, so that in potential critical times we can all work together to support our neighbors, help each other and know who is in reach of us in a few mile radius…

Kindly spread the word and help us to build our local community into an even stronger force.

Thanks so much.

Warm Regards,

  1. Hi Steve,

    Interesting blog about survival preparedness. I must confess that I know almost nothing about the subject, which leads me to think that the fire department probably should be doing things that we’re not.

    I suspect that your readers have a wealth of knowledge that would benefit everyone if they would like to share. I know that I certainly would be interested in thoughts about emergency preparedness, and I believe that the other two commissioners would as well. Our current preparedness is limited to generators for the stations, and getting Weyerhaeuser to open their road from the Bald Hills to Vail in the event that the Bald Hills Rd is closed.

    We do have some limited resources that could be used for emergency preparedness and would respectfully welcome all ideas.

    Bald Hills Fire Dept. Commissioner
