Over 60 people attended today’s fire meeting in Shelter Cove. The fire raging just north and east of the area as a result of last weekend’s lightning storms has brought talk of evacuation to this beautiful coastal community. A phone tree notified inhabitants of the importance of the gathering. Not only residents but Firefighting officials, a representative of the Highway Patrol, and Supervisor Johanna Rodoni attended. There officials went over evacuation plans with the locals.
According to Diane Harper who lives there, the group was told that officials would be
notifying us 24 hrs and then 12 hrs and then 6 hrs in front of the fire if it ever heads our way…We were told NOT to wait for the 12 hr. or even worse the 6 hr. notice. We were advised to take all valuable possessions with us due to the fact we would not be allowed back into our homes once the evacuation started.
They also said that when we received the green light to come back to our homes we would need proper identification to be let back in. The identification would need to show our street address and not just a P.O.box.
The fire engines will remain on standby. Harper explains, “we were told because if they let it go we will never get it back due to all the other fires in California.
