Thur, 6:45 pm- K,  I'm just finishing up with a big project.  I will launch it later tonight.  Thanks for bearing with me.  It will be worth it. 

No News on Highway 18 yet.  I will let you know

Thur, 4:00 pm- Sorry, no update for a while.  Been busy planning events.  Thanks for being patient.  All the post offices are receiving mail now, so the temporarily offices have been closed.

They still have a lot of animals at the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds in Victorville.  Contact (530)622-9313 

Thanks to Barry Rudolph for these Pictures and Stories.

The crews from Engines 4485 and Engine 4471 after the Cliffhanger Restaurant save.

"We arrived on Saturday October 25, 2003 on the Playground Fire on CDF order number BDU-11471. The Old Fire made a run to the top past Highway 18 early Sunday Morning near Great View Drive. We began structure protection along Great View Road, Rock View Rd, Skyland Dr, Saturn Dr, Neptune Dr, and Jupiter Dr. later that day we moved back east along Crest Forest Rd, and worked the Cliffhanger Restaurant.  We worked the next 5 days on the mountain in various areas including Sky Forest, Cedar Glen and Devils Canyon Rd to Sawpit Creek Ranch."   -Barry Rudolph  STL 9442C (Tuolumne Calaveras Unit)


Once we got our engines set up and in position, we lost no houses to the fire. Those that burned in our area were already involved upon our arrival. In one case on Skyland Drive, we (E4475) made a stop on a partially involved structure with assistance from E-91 from San Bernardino County Fire Department.

Thur, 12:45 pm- Note from my wife-

To all of you who have sent a note to the kids and me, thank you for your support.  I must have needed the encouragement because your kind words brought tears to my eyes.  I am grateful that Dacy has been of service to you. All and our children are aware of the good their Daddy and Papa Al are doing.  We are thankful for this opportunity to serve and hope and pray that life for everyone impacted by these fires will be bolstered continually and return to some semblance of normalcy as quickly as possible.  With love and prayers, Amy and the kids

Thur, 12:30 pm- Fire information Meeting in San Bernardino.  The location for this meeting is Calvary Baptist Church, 3701 Sierra Way, San Bernardino, CA 92405 - call 882-2564 or visit www.calvarysbdo.org for more information.
Thur, 12:00 pm- I'm still working on some stuff.  We have a lot of good events planned.  We'll be announcing them real soon as we finalize things.  I've updated some info on the Cedar Glen Area.
Thur, 9:30 am- If you need Insurance Information or contact numbers we have begun building our Insurance Section.  I am still in need of an "expert" in insurances to answer questions.

Also, if you consider yourself knowledgeable on any subject that would help the the victims, please contact me.  Soliciting Business for yourself or for others as an expert is not allowed.
