San Bernardino City and San Bernardino County Fire Departments to Conduct Little Mountain Controlled Burn

San Bernardino City and San Bernardino County Fire Departments to Conduct Controlled Burn on Little Mountain Monday May 23rd

Date: 05/23/16
Location: Little Mountain Dr. just South of Kendall

The San Bernardino City and County Fire Departments will be conducting an organized live “Controlled Burn” on Little Mountain Dr., South of Kendall Dr., behind Shandin Hills Middle School on Monday May 23rd, 2016. 

All burning should occur between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. The purpose of this burn is to provide both a buffer zone for future fire control while providing valuable training in wildland firefighting techniques.

“Controlled Burns” have proven to be very successful in protecting homes and property in Wildland/Urban Interface areas, in the event of an uncontrolled fire. These burns will only be conducted if favorable weather conditions are present on the day of the burn.

Firefighters urge residents to:

· Keep all doors and windows closed to minimize any inconvenience due to possible smoke.
· Stay out of the area and slow down if traveling on Little Mountain Dr. as fire department personnel will be actively working in the area.
· We anticipate no impact to Shandin Hills Middle School in regards to smoke.

The safety of citizens and property will continue to be our #1 priority before, during, and after the drill.

****REMINDER**** Every fire has the ability to be catastrophic. The wildland fire management environment has profoundly changed. Growing numbers of communities, across the nation, are experiencing longer fire seasons; more frequent, bigger, and more severe, fires are a real threat. Be careful with all campfires and equipment.
