New standards

Thank you for the excellent article entitled, “Fire Evacua­tion Signs are a County First” that you ran last week. Our Alpine team, consisting of Fire Marshal Jason McBroom of the Alpine Fire Protection District, Lieutenant Anthony O’Boyle of the Alpine Sheriff’s Department, and Jeff Forbes and myself from the Greater Al­pine Fire Safe Council, worked closely with Supervisor Jacob and San Diego County to set new standards for signs along evacuation routes and for real time information about threat­ening wildfires. We hope these standards will now be imple­mented elsewhere in other East County communities.

Neville Connell

President, Greater Alpine Fire Safe Council
