Moonridge Area To Get Evacuation Signs

Evacuation signs, if followed, will lead drivers safely out of the Moonridge area. Because the signs will be installed in the county area and the upper Moonridge area of Big Bear Lake, the Mountain Area Safety Taskforce felt the project should be overseen by one organization.  This project was headed by the San Bernardino County Code Enforcement Division, which was funded through a grant from the Inland Empire Chapter of the American Red Cross. According to Team Leader Julie Hernandez of County Code Enforcement, it has taken two years to plan and seek approvals from various city and county departments. She said it’s been a lot of work but it’s rewarding to see that the signs are up. She hopes we never...
