Debris Disposal Bins on Alpine Blvd. for West Fire Victims Clean Up

Debris Removal

To help with the recovery process, the County of San Diego is placing debris disposal bins at locations near the burn area for fire survivors to dispose of debris from their properties. Beginning Saturday, July 14, 2018, community bins will be placed at the following location, and are ready to accept debris when fire survivors are ready:

  • 3508 Alpine Boulevard (MAP IT)
  • Additional locations may be added, continue to check the website for information

 

The County has been working to help connect the nonprofit volunteer groups with fire survivors who may be in need of their assistance.  The nonprofit groups have experienced, trained staff who possess the necessary tools and resources to perform debris removal, which they have utilized successfully on prior fire recovery events in the San Diego region.  The available nonprofit groups are initiating contact with fire survivors to determine their debris removal needs and offer assistance.


Erosion Control

To help residents living in or around the burn area, the County has opened the Erosion Control Center to advise people on how to protect their homes and provide sand, sandbags and fiber rolls for free to help stabilize burned properties before rains arrive. Protect your property now from flooding.

The Erosion Control Center is by appointment only. Call (888) 846-0800 for more information.


Volunteer Resources

Survivors with remaining unmet needs are encouraged to contact San Diego Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters to learn more about additional recovery information and services from local faith based, services based, and community based organizations.


Recovery Assistance Hotline and Email

Unincorporated County residents affected by the wildfires may call the

Recovery Assistance Hotline (858) 495-5200

or email CountyFireRecovery@sdcounty.ca.gov. Both will be staffed by County employees from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., 7 days a week. Callers can leave a voice mail after hours and County staff will return the call the next day.

 

 

FREE CHIPPING of Downed, Charred, Trimmed Tree Branches in the VIEW STREETS – July 16-20, 2018

July 12, 2018 – Two of us with the Greater Alpine Fire Safe Council (GAFSC) toured the View streets in Alpine yesterday and it appears that some folks may be interested in chipping downed &/or charred limbs or branches. This next week, July 16-20, is our regular Zone 3 chipping event which includes the View streets. We will chip ANY of the subject materials staged by the curb or along a driveway as we pass thru, registration will not be required and materials should be staged by Sunday the 15th.

We ask that our normal rules be observed, for clarity we cannot chip any building materials, and that the crew can get in and out; for more info see: www.greateralpinefsc.org.

*We intend to offer an additional stand alone Emergency Free Chipping event to the fire victims in this area at a time and date that is approved by AFPD Fire Marshal.

Thank you,

Dennis Larsen

ALERT!! Concrete Blocks on the I-8 Freeway Near Dunbar Lane AGAIN

Shared from El Cajon CHP June 10,2018

Alpine, Calif. – Since the beginning of 2018 to February 7th there had been four reports of landscaping retaining wall blocks lying within the traffic lanes of I-8 westbound, east of Dunbar Lane. This led to several traffic collisions causing moderate to major damage to the vehicles involved. The CHP responded to these incidents on various nights of the week from the hours of 10:00 PM to 2:00 AM. Each time, large landscaping retaining wall blocks were located in the traffic lanes. On February 7 the CHP issued a Press Release requesting the public’s help in locating the person or persons responsible. From that point the issued had ceased. (See original article on the ACN)

On June 9 at approximately 12:26 AM, the CHP El Cajon area received a call of several vehicles on I-8 westbound, east of Dunbar Lane, which had hit a concrete object in the roadway causing damage to their vehicles. When units arrived on scene, 8-10 vehicles were determined to have sustained disabling damage consisting of bent wheels and flat tires due to hitting a concrete parking stop that had been placed in the roadway. Four concrete parking stops (weighing approximately 60 lbs.) and three cinder blocks were located on the shoulder.

Patrol has been increased in the area however; there is no suspect information at this time. Anyone who may have seen a vehicle, persons or anything suspicious near the location is urged to contact the CHP El Cajon area at (619) 401-2000.

If you have questions or need further information, please contact Officer Travis Garrow at (619) 401-2000.

Curbside Palm Frond & Arundo Chipping Programs Introduced by Greater Alpine Fire Safe Council!

The Greater Alpine Fire Safe Council is introducing two new programs: A curbside palm frond and Arundo chipping program.

 

Dear Chipping Fans,

For years we have been unable to chip palm fronds and Arundo but in 2018 all that changed!!  Now, courtesy of Supervisor Dianne Jacob, we have a brand new Eliet Pro Cross Country Chipper that solves that problem and we are starting a pilot Curbside Palm Frond & Arundo Chipping Program!  We will start by offering this program once per year to customers in all our zones, following the schedule below:

Zone 1, 2, 3, 4: September 3 – 7, 2018
Zone 5, 6, 7: November 12 – 16, 2018               

We will advertise these events at the beginning of each quarter for chipping two months later.  We will send you a reminder by email then and another when on-line registration opens for your Zone, which will follow the current Curbside Chipping process.

Additional Rules

You must follow the regular Curbside Chipping Rules but in addition, because of the special nature of palm fronds and Arundo, your green cut piles must dry out for at least 2 but no more than 4 weeks before the event. When stacking your piles, make sure the stems face the chipper, and are located where the chips may be piled.  The Eliet chipper does not broadcast chips!

And the good news is that this is a No Cost Service!

For more info please email Neville Connell HERE or visit our website at www.GreaterAlpinefsc.org
