10/27/2019 - PSPS Community Meeting at 10am in Utica Park & Angels Camp City Hall Open 8am - 5pm Sunday During PG
Angels Camp, CA...The City of Angels Camp reminds our community that it is important to be prepared and have a plan for PG&E’s Public Safety Power Shutoff program (PSPS). Prepare for an outage that may occur today and may last several days. City Hall will be open on Sunday, October 27 from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm if the power is out on Sunday. City Hall will have information about the PSPS, City services, and where you can go to charge a device if you need to. A PSPS Community Meeting is planned for Sunday, October 27, 2019 at Utica Park at 10:00 am. City Staff will be available to answer questions and give out information about how to sign up for Calaveras Alert and Nixle.


The City of Angels Camp offers the following tips during a power outage:

• Lock and secure all residences, outbuildings, businesses, etc. Alarm systems may not work during power outages.
• Secure, lock, and remove all valuables from your vehicles, boats, trailers, etc.
• Be aware of your surroundings. Call 911 to report emergencies. Report any non-emergency suspicious activity to law enforcement at (209) 754-6500.
• Plan ahead for any medical needs. If you or someone you know relies upon electricity for a medical need, a power outage can be life-threatening. If you know of someone that is medically dependent upon electricity, remember to check on them during power outages.
• During a power outage, minimize water usage to only critical health and safety needs to help the City of Angels Camp maintain service to its customers and reduce potential backups. Keep an emergency supply of drinking water available for people and pets.

PG&E offers the following tips during a power outage:

• Unplug or turn off appliances, equipment and electronic to avoid damage caused by surges when power is restored
• Leave a single lamp on to alert you when the power returns. Then, turn your appliances on, one at a time.
• Typically, your refrigerator will keep food cold for about 4 hours and a full freezer will keep its temperature for about 48 hours, as long as the refrigerator and freezer doors are kept closed. Consider using coolers with ice to keep food cold and safe.
• Be sure to use generators, camp stoves, or charcoal grills outdoors only. Do not use a gas stove for heat.
• Check on your neighbors.


PG&E’s outages will occur in response to localized weather conditions and may not be fully known until the day of the event. The decision to turn off the power and the speed at which it is restored is planned and managed solely by PG&E. Citizens need to prepare for being without power for several days. PG&E will attempt to notify customers of PSPS outages through calls, texts, and emails using the contact information that PG&E has on file. Be sure your contact information is up-to-date with PG&E at pge.com/mywildfirealerts.

10/21/2019 - Prescribed Burns Planned to Begin Week of October 21st at Calaveras Big Trees State Park
Arnold, CA...California State Parks in cooperation with the California Department of Forestry and Fire protection (CAL FIRE) are planning to begin a series of prescribed burns beginning on or around the week of October 21, 2019 through the end of November in Calaveras Big Trees State Park. The goal is to complete 382 acres this fall (see maps below). Ignitions are expected to occur when weather conditions are favorable and adequate resources are available. Some of the units have been previously thinned to reduce the fuel loading, which allows for a safer and more controllable broadcast burn. Much of this work was funded through Propositions 84 and 1 grant from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy, an agency of the State of California.

These burns are part of the prescribed fire program for vegetation management, hazardous fuel load reduction, wildlife habitat improvement, enhance the health of the forest by removing diseased materials, restoring essential nutrients to the soil, and reducing the chance of a catastrophic wildfire. Through forest thinning and prescribed fire, an ecologically healthy forest system can be restored and maintained. Additional benefits of these prescribed burns include protection for the Big Trees developments (Visitors Center, campground, etc.), and the North Grove of giant sequoias.

Pile burning will also take place throughout the fall, winter, and spring seasons within the North and South Grove and along the Big Trees Village and Blue Lake Spring park boundaries.

Prescribed burns produce significantly less smoke than wildfires. The burns are planned and coordinated with the Calaveras and Tuolumne County Air Districts in order to minimize the smoke impacts on surrounding communities. All burning depends on weather and air quality conditions that are favorable for smoke dispersal. If the conditions, such as weather or vegetation are not conducive for burning, the burns will be rescheduled.

Communities near Calaveras Big Trees State Park, including Dorrington, Big Trees Village, White Pines, Blue Lake Spring and Arnold may experience smoke from the burning operations. California State Parks is working with the Calaveras and Tuolumne County Air Pollution Control Districts to limit impacts to smoke sensitive areas.

Both Highway 4 and the Walter W. Smith Parkway will remain open but may experience delays due to smoke and other hazards. The Parkway may experience short-term closures prior to the end of season closure. Some public campsites and dirt roads near the burn areas will be closed to public access during prescribed burn operations including the East and West Moran Roads, East and West 5000 Foot Roads, as well as the South Rim Road. Please obey all warning signs.

For questions or comments about the projects or about the prescribed burn program, contact Jackie Olavarria at (209) 984-8703.
