Approaching Winter Storm – Preparedness Information
 
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
 
A series of winter storms are approaching northern Arizona over the next few days, starting Thursday afternoon, primary concerns are loss of heat, power and telephone service and a shortage of supplies if storm conditions continue for more than a few days. Areas of concern are in the higher elevations of Yavapai County such as Groom Creek, Potato-Patch, Walker, Highland Pines, Breezy Pines, and communities along Senator Highway, Thumb Butte Road, and Copper Basin Road.
Be Prepared – Yavapai County Road crews will be working around the clock to keep main roadways passable. It may be three to four days before crews are able to clear residential subdivisions and outlying areas. Please prepare accordingly.
Residents in higher elevations by adding additional items to your emergency kits, rescheduling travel plans, and staying off the road as much as possible.
Some additional items that you should stock up on are listed below as well as listed on www.ready.gov :
    • Food, at least a three-day supply of non-perishable food
    • Sufficient heating fuel. You may become isolated in your home and regular fuel sources may be cut off. Refuel propane tanks before you are empty; fuel carriers may not reach you for days after a winter storm Store a good supply of dry, seasoned wood for your fireplace or wood-burning stove.
    • Adequate clothing and blankets to keep you warm.
    • Water, one gallon of water per person per day for at least three days, for drinking and sanitation
    • Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert and extra batteries for both
    • Flashlight and extra batteries
    • Rock salt or more environmentally safe products to melt ice on walkways. Visit the Environmental Protection Agency for a complete list of recommended products.
    • Snow shovels and other snow removal equipment.
  • Current medical conditions, plan ahead to stay closer to medical facilities. Emergency services may not be able to respond in a timely manner if access is restricted.
  • Make a Family Communications Plan. Your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so it is important to know how you will contact one another, how you will get back together and what you will do in case of an emergency.
  • Listen to a NOAA Weather Radio or other local news channels for critical information from the National Weather Service (NWS). Be alert to changing weather conditions.
  • Minimize travel. If travel is necessary, keep a disaster supplies kit in your vehicle. Stock up on food & supplies beforehand so you don’t have to travel during a storm.
  • Bring pets/companion animals inside during winter weather. Move other animals or livestock to sheltered areas with non-frozen drinking water.
Preparing for Loss of Power:
Primary concerns are loss of heat, power and telephone service and a shortage of supplies if storm conditions continue for more than a day.
  • Extra food and water such as dried fruit, nuts and granola bars, and other food requiring no cooking or refrigeration.
  • Flashlight and extra batteries
  • Extra prescription medicine
  • Baby items such as diapers and formula
  • First-aid supplies
  • Heating fuel: refuel before you are empty; fuel carriers may not reach you for days after a winter storm
  • Emergency heat source: fireplace, wood stove, space heater, properly ventilated to prevent a fire
  • Extra pet food and warm shelter for pets
  • Snow can be melted for an additional water source.
  • If you lose your heat, seal off unused rooms by stuffing towels in the cracks under the doors. At night, cover windows with extra blankets or sheets.
  • Battery-powered NOAA Weather Radio and portable radio to receive emergency information
  • Fire extinguisher, smoke alarm; test smoke alarms once a month to ensure they work properly.

Winterize Your Home

  • Insulate pipes with insulation or newspapers and plastic and allow faucets to drip a little during cold weather to avoid freezing. Running water, even at a trickle, helps prevent pipes from freezing.
  • All fuel-burning equipment should be vented to the outside and kept clear.
  • Keep fire extinguishers on hand, and make sure everyone in your house knows how to use them. House fires pose an additional risk, as more people turn to alternate heating sources without taking the necessary safety precautions.
  • Learn how to shut off water valves (in case a pipe bursts).

After an Outage

  • Be extra cautious if you go outside to inspect for damage after a storm. Downed or hanging electrical wires can be hidden by snowdrifts, trees or debris, and could be live. Never attempt to touch or moved downed lines. Keep children and pets away from them.
  • Do not touch anything power lines are touching, such as tree branches or fences. Always assume a downed line is a live line. Call your utility company to report any outage-related problem such as downed wires.
  • Throw away any food that has been exposed to temperatures 40° F (4° C) for 2 hours or more or that has an unusual odor, color or texture. When in doubt, throw it out!

Vehicle checklist

Plan your travel and check the latest weather reports to avoid the storm! Fully check and winterize your vehicle before a winter storm.
Carry a Winter Storm Survival Kit:
  • Mobile phone, charger, batteries
  • Compass and road maps (don’t depend on mobile devices)
  • Full tank of gas
  • New wiper blades
  • Top off antifreeze levels
  • Blankets/sleeping bags
  • Flashlight with extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Cutting device
  • High-calorie, non-perishable food
  • Extra clothing to keep dry
  • Small can and waterproof matches to melt snow for drinking water
  • Sack of sand or cat litter for traction
  • Shovel
  • Windshield scraper and brush
  • Tool kit
  • Tow rope
  • Battery booster cables
  • Water container

Weather Alert from Area Agencies

Dear Neighbors
Please be alert to bulletins especially in regard to travel on highways out of the Rimrock / Lake Montezuma area.  If you are in the vicinity of a wash, a creek or downslope of a ridge; being prepared with sandbags and trenches is a good idea.  Sand and bags are still available in the Sycamore Park parking lot and at the east end of the recycling area in Rimrock.  The following message is from Fire Chief Keller:
All,
Be prepared for a significant weather event this weekend!
While it looks like our area will only receive rain, we may be busy on the higher portions of the interstate due to snow- and down low due to slick/wet roadways.  Hopefully we will not see a rise in the streams due to snow on, but we should keep an eye on things nonetheless in case we get a rain-on-snow event in the later part of the storm.
Stay safe and warm!
Chief Keller

Swift Water Rescue on December 22nd

Chief Keller, Copper Canyon Fire & Medical
Reports Stranded Motorist Rescue from Roaring Creek

On December 22nd, at approximately 2:15 PM, Copper Canyon Fire and Medical Authority was dispatched to a report of a pick-up truck that had been pushed down stream in Dry Beaver Creek at Kimberly’s Way in McGuireville due to significant runoff from recent rain.  Upon arrival, crews made voice contact with the single occupant in the vehicle about 100 yards downstream from the crossing, where it had lodged on some terrain adjacent to some small trees- firmly in the middle of the very swollen creek.  With limited technical rescue/swiftwater resources on scene, additional requests were made to Sedona Fire District to respond with technicians, as well as an ambulance from Verde Valley Fire District.  Copper Canyon Fire and Medical also recalled

technicians from their roster to support the incident.  Yavapai County Sherriff was also on scene and requested a response from their rescue team out of Prescott as well.  A request for a Department of Public Safety Helicopter was also made, as a back-up resource, but the aircraft were all grounded due to the weather.

After setting up an upstream spotter to watch for floating hazards and monitoring the rising water level, resources were divided to both sides of the swollen creek.  Crews then created several strategies to attempt to assist the uninjured occupant of the vehicle to the shoreline.  An initial effort to float an inflatable raft with paddlers came close to succeeding, but unfortunately the current was too strong for the crew on the raft to “make the eddy” by pulling the raft into the current behind the truck.  This crew was able to safely float downstream and after exiting the water safely, assisted with the next attempt.  The second attempt proved to be successful when crews delivered a rope to the vehicle by using the stream’s current, and the victim then tied this rope off to his truck bed.  This enabled a “swimmer” to use this angled line to safely approach the vehicle from upstream and deliver a life vest and helmet to the victim.  This same line was then relocated downstream on the shore, and this time the victim and the rescuer took advantage of the current to “ferry” along the angled rope safely to the shore.
Copper Canyon Fire and Medical greatly appreciated the support of the Yavapai County Sherriff’s Office, Department of Public Safety, Verde Valley Fire District, and Sedona Fire District in helping to mitigate this incident safely.  There were no reported injuries to any of the responders, and the victim refused further treatment after medical evaluation from Verde Valley Fire ambulance personnel.
CCFMA wants to remind everyone that attempting to drive across flooding stream beds is simply not worth the risk.  Floodwaters move and change the road surface, and it may no longer be where it typically is.  While this incident fortunately did not result in injuries, it easily could have turned out much worse.  At a minimum, the truck involved in this incident will need costly repairs, or to be replaced.
Have a Merry Christmas and stay safe this winter!
 Chief Terry Keller

Vintage (RR BBQ) Closed as of 11/9/2016

 

Yesterday the RR BBQ Restaurant hosted 40+ members of the Lake Montezuma Women’s Civic Club and was bustling with energy throughout Tuesday.  Today it is closed off.  A sandwich board blocks the driveway which states, “Sadly, due to recent changes in employment laws, we cannot afford to continue in business”.
 
In late spring Mulligan’s Grille LLC owned and managed by Shane and Kathy Watts began the process of a zoning change for the RR BBQ parcel to hard-zoned Commercial 2-35 (Commercial; General Sales and Service).  On September 21, 2016, the Yavapai County Board of Supervisors approved upgraded zoning.  Thus, the Watts are ready to begin a new endeavor at this location.
 
With the grille’s closure, scheduled meetings and activities are being relocated starting with the special FBCL meeting that would have used the building on Sunday.  Therefore:
 
FRIENDS OF BEAVER CREEK LIBRARY’S ANNUAL MEETING WILL BE HELD AT THE BEAVER CREEK ADULT CENTER THIS SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 2:00 TO 4:00 PM DUE TO THE SUDDEN CLOSURE OF RR BBQ.
ANY QUESTIONS REGARDING THIS MEETING, PLEASE CONTACT JUDY MCBRIDE, 567-4648 OR DARLA MELCHER, 592-0792.
