MORONGO BASIN MAC HEARS THAT MOST LOCAL FIRE STATIONS WILL REMAIN OPEN

Despite the light agenda, lots came out of last night’s meeting of the Morongo Basin MAC. Reporter David Haldane was there and offers this report…
Rumors regarding the potential closure of several desert fire stations contain a grain of truth. But it’s only a grain. That according to Battalion Chief Mike Snow, a spokesman for the San Bernardino County Fire Dept., who spoke on the matter at last night’s meeting of the Morongo Basin Municipal Advisory Council.
The truth: that Wonder Valley is indeed being considered for possible closure. And though the stations in Landers, Pioneertown and Johnson Valley will remain open for now, they will eventually be staffed by volunteers rather than paid firefighters.
Snow’s was one of several public safety reports presented at the meeting which, frankly, had little else on its agenda. A spokesman for the CHP promised to work on reducing speed limits along Highway 62. And, finally, a Sheriff’s Dept. spokesman urged residents to check mail boxes frequently to prevent their contents from being stolen.
