Carbon Canyon Wildfire Awareness Fair This Saturday!

The Carbon Canyon Fire Safe Council, an organization dedicated to promoting prevention of and preparedness for fire, is holding its annual Wildfire Awareness Fair this Saturday, 5 May from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Chino Hills State Park Discovery Center in Brea.

The free event will feature vendors providing information on public safety, firewise and waterwise landscpaing, fire protection products (such as chemical foams used on structures), children's activities (including face painting and a native plant project), a live animal exhibit and more.

Sponsors, in addition to the Council, are the cities of Brea and Chino Hills, the environmental group Hills for Everyone, California State Parks, the Brea Fire Department, the Chino Valley Fire District, CalFire (the state fire agency), Myers and Sons Hi-Way Safety Company, and State Farm Insurance.

For those people living in the 3,000+ houses within the Carbon Canyon area and those outside, there is plenty to learn about and from at this important event.  While it has been 3 1/2 years since the major Freeway Complex fire that ravaged the Brea portion of the Canyon, the threat of fire is nearly always present and anyone who lives in proximity to areas that are prone to wildfires will benefit greatly from attending.

More information on the Council and its activities can be found here.

Hello prs. I Googled the ghost of Carbon Canyon and came upon your site. I read post from May 2008 about the ghost. Well, I'm here to tell you, I've been there and seen the ghost back in 1965. I've even written a story about it. Interested in more? You can contact me at mkautz@volcano.net
