Check Your Trees for Shot Hole Borer!



Red Flag Alert
A Red Flag Alert Warning is a forecast warning issued by the National Weather Service (NWS) to inform area firefighters and land management agencies that conditions are heightened for wildland fire ignition and rapid fire propagation.
When humidity is very low and especially when high or erratic winds which may include lightning are a factor, the Red Flag Warning becomes a critical statement for firefighting agencies. Local fire agencies often increase their staffing and equipment resources to accommodate the forecast risk.
To the Public, a Red Flag Warning means high fire danger with increased probability of a quickly spreading vegetation fire in the area within 24 hours.
What Should I Do During a Red Flag Warning?
   *Review your Personal Wildfire Action Plan with your entire household and practice it regularly.  Refer to the Ready, Set, Go pamphlet.
   *Have a minimum of two routes in which to evacuate out of your area.
   *Have an out of the area emergency contact incase local phone service is interrupted.
   *Have a portable Disaster Kit ready to take with you if you are asked to evacuate.  It should contain all of your important paperwork, required medications and other valuables.
   *Keep up to date through local media, DO NOT call 911.
   *Collect pets and have them so you can quickly load them in the event you must evacuate.
   *Park in your driveway facing out to keep roads accessible to emergency equipment.
   *Have your drivers license with proof of residence on you, in case of road closures.
   *Communicate with neighbors to make them aware of the increase fire and safety risk.
   *Remember A RED FLAG ALERT MEANS TO BE PREPARED, NOT PANIC!

Officer Gutierrez of the Santa Barbara Police Department has recommended that we inform residents of EHIA that last Saturday, February 11 at 5 am there were sightings of someone attempting to break into homes in and around Alston Rd. and Norman Lane. Be alert. Contact the police department if you see any unusual activity.
If you leave your home during the day, remember to lock all windows and doors.  If you are away overnight or longer, let your neighbors know of your absence and ask them to keep an eye on your home while you're away.  Leaving someone in the neighborhood with an emergency phone number where you can be contacted is also a very good idea.  If you are at home and notice "unusual activity" in our neighborhood, do not hesitate to call the SBPD's non-emergency number: 897-2410

Speeding on Alston Road is an ongoing neighborhood problem.

At EHIA's request, a temporary radar speed monitoring trailer has been set up by Norman Lane.

The association is looking into a range of possible solutions to this problem.
