Camp Fire Connect smoothes transition

The Lake Almanor Area Chamber of Commerce Camp Fire Fund is continuing to lend a hand to the basin’s newest residents coming from areas affected by the Camp Fire.

April 28 found several dozen folks that have been meeting as “Camp Fire Connect,” sharing dinner and conversation about the process of relocating to Lake Almanor and offering support to one another.

This session also included a talk from Karen Lichti with the Chester Fire Department who offered information on emergency procedures for the Chester/Lake Almanor Basin and she also spoke about Chester Fire Wise activities.

Lichti included information regarding Plumas County’s addition of a “CodeRed” Emergency Alert System and how individuals can register to be on the alert system.

Even though some of this information might be a bit sobering for those that have recently lived through that trauma, it is still vital and appeared to be appreciated by all.

Several folks were interested in any Community Emergency Response Training that might be available in the near future.

LAACC will be hosting two more Camp Fire Connect dinners with the next one being held May 19 at the Country Club Rec. 1 barbeque area.
