The City of Big Bear Lake’s Fire Protection District will meet tomorrow morning, October 14, at a new time and a new place—the meeting of the Fire Protection District, which is overseen by City Council, will take place at the Big Bear Lake Fire Department, at 41090 Big Bear Boulevard, and has been moved up to an 8:15am start time. Tomorrow morning’s agenda will include the fire department’s monthly report as well as an update on activities undertaken during Fire Prevention Week, which wrapped on Saturday. Representatives from the Mountaintop District of the San Bernardino National Forest will also be on hand, as they are scheduled to give a presentation on forest fuels reduction, and plans to implement the Bluff Mesa Hazardous Fuel Reduction project; the District proposes to reduce fire risk to the community and improve forest health on 1,600 acres on the Bluff Mesa area around Bluff Lake, which is off Forest Service Road 2N10 near Champion Lodgepole Pine on the Valley’s south ridge a couple miles west of Snow Summit.
