Beaver Creek eNews 3/8/2020

Dear Neighbors
 
Last month was a little more interesting than most of us would like. Good news on February 20. The P&Z Commission voted NO to PPE which was a stress reliever to have that concluded for now. The day before, the Beaver Creek Golf Course & Ranch House fell out of escrow without completing purchase. Perhaps for the 8th time? So, the property ownership remains the same for now.
Tomorrow afternoon the BCCA Board will hear a presentation about the town house lots around Lake Montezuma and go over a report from our representatives on the Citizens’ Bond Advisory Committee. This committee will make a recommendation to the CCF&MD Fire Chief and Fire Board about whether to pursue a bond (property tax increase) to potentially add additional fire stations and equipment. Their next meeting is at 5 PM Monday evening in the Camp Verde Library. The public may attend.
On Friday, the Beaver Creek Preservation & Historical Society’s annual meeting is at the Rock School and will dedicate the new windows. Robert Estrada will give an update on his research about Lulu, an Apache Indian girl in the 1800’s. That afternoon in the BC Library is an opportunity to get Narcan training. There have been 3 overdoses in Rimrock since October, one was a youth. If you think that you might need to have this knowledge and treatment at hand, please read the flyer below and RSVP. Like CPR, you never know when this skill might be a lifesaver.
Later this month and in April the Census should be a priority for our area. Much funding for the school and other services is based on the collected information. Please help by responding. Also, there are still $16.50 jobs available. This paycheck will not affect any other sources of income. If interested, please call 1-800-JOB-2020 or apply online at
It’s still not too late to get Free help with your taxes at one of these sites. And a heads up about the Free Dumping this year. Appliances, tires, bagged trash, TV’s and old bicycles are accepted as usual. But slash, weed trimmings, is not accepted since the mulch pile is still smoldering from the fire.  Free dumping starts on 3/19.

Structure Fire on E Yuma Drive, with Rescue 3/1/2020

 

On March 1, 2020, Copper Canyon Fire and Medical District, along with the Verde Valley Fire District responded to 3950 East Yuma Drive for the report of a structure fire with an unconscious person inside. Crews arrived on scene to find a small residential duplex type structure with no smoke or fire showing. The occupant of the home along with family members were standing outside and stated that her son was still inside the home.
Crews made access to the home to find smoke and high heat. Crews encountered a male victim who was unconscious several feet inside the front door. Crews quickly extricated the victim to the exterior of the home, where he was treated until EMS crews arrived on scene. Once additional emergency crews arrived on scene, the smoldering type fire was quickly extinguished. Fire damage did not extend to the adjacent apartment. The victim was airlifted to a local burn center for treatment of his injuries. One additional victim was treated and released on scene for smoke inhalation. This incident is still under investigation.

We have a variety of positions available to accommodate any interest and/or ability. We will be offering several training opportunities in January and February 2020.

Positions at Montezuma Castle National Monument:
Visitor Center Greeter and Pass Checker
Montezuma Castle is looking for several volunteers from February 17- May 30 to assist with the long lines at our registers.  Visitation is at our highest during those months and the visitor center gets very crowded.  Volunteers checking passes provide a valuable service to our visitors by expediting their entry into our park and by explaining the best value pass to purchase. This position involves sitting at a table outside.
 
Junior Ranger Helper
Volunteers are needed to staff our Junior Ranger table at Montezuma Castle from February 17-May 30.  During our busiest time of year we often exceed 100 Junior Rangers a day. We currently have 2 programs: One for Montezuma Castle and the state-wide AZ Junior Explorer book.  Volunteers will let visitors know about the program, hand out and explain the books, check the answers with the visitor and swear them in as Junior Rangers.  Anyone can be a Junior Ranger, ages 0-100+. This position involves sitting at a table outside.
Trail Docent
Volunteers are needed to walk our trail answering visitor questions and offering guided tours. This position involves standing for long periods or walking a 1/3 mile paved loop trail several times.

This position may include sitting at a table greeting visitors or standing for long periods and walking a moderate-strenuous ½ mile trail with many steps and inclines.

Copper Canyon Fire & Medical Report
On January 8  at 02:42 in the morning, Copper Canyon Fire and Medical District Stations 81 and 82 were dispatched to a residential fire at 2740 E. Outlaw Way in Rimrock. Emergency crews arrived on scene to find a small residential structure with smoke coming from a gable end on the roof line. The incident was quickly upgraded to a working fire, bringing mutual aid responses from Verde Valley Fire, Sedona Fire and Yavapai County Sheriff’s office. Crews deployed an offensive strategy, stretching hose lines into the structure. Upon entry into the structure emergency crews found a small smoldering type fire in the attic space of the home. Crews quickly extinguished the fire and overhauled the remaining area.
The structure sustained minimal damage, though it did displace the occupants. There were no injuries sustained by the occupants of the home as they evacuated without incident from the structure prior to emergency crews arrival. No emergency crews sustained injuries either. CCFMD would like to thank Verde Valley fire and Sedona Fire for their assistance on this incident. The cause of the fire is still under investigation at this time

Beaver Creek eNews 10/4/2019

Dear Neighbors
We are so fortunate to be looking at another week of highs in the 80’s and lows in the 50’s. Such perfect October weather!! While on the subject of good things locally, the Beaver Creek Gasmart looks much better with its new tan & rust paint job. POBs (Pats on Back) to those who made the paint change possible.
Also, on the good news front. Yavapai County has begun a month-long project to improve the safety of our signs themselves and their use for those who observe them. Jon David, Signs & Pavement Markings Project Manager for Yavapai County Public Works, reports that “Crews are out working on a project in the Lake Montezuma/ Rimrock/ Mcguireville areas. The reason for the project is to change the sign mounting post from a U-channel type post which currently exists to a square post telespar type that is mounted in a concrete base. The new base and post comply with guidelines that we must follow, and it improves response time for signs that become damaged. We are also replacing around 400 street name signs in the area that do not comply with retro reflectivity standards. These types of projects have been ongoing in Yavapai County for the past few years.” More POB’s!
And now the ugly. A resident took a drive up the road past Sedona Sky School and while hiking found that people are dumping yard debris (tree limbs etc) and construction debris (broken cement blocks etc) in two different areas off the paved road and on the dirt side roads. Please utilize your burn permits for the slash and use the Camp Verde Transfer Station (the dump) or Grey Wolf for the construction waste. If possible and safe, report dumping in the surrounding forest to the Red Rock Ranger Station and on private property to YCSO.

Beaver Creek eNews 9/23/2019

Dear Neighbors
Maybe we’ll be enjoying some rain (or hail) with our busy week in Beaver Creek.  Please be safe and heed all alerts.  Everything is still being held later in the week, so don’t miss out on the Kiwanis Donation Spaghetti Dinner at the Fire House on Thursday or the free food and activities all day on Saturday in Rollins Park sponsored by Grace Community Lutheran Church, Beaver Creek Trails Coalition and Beaver Creek Kiwanis. Wonderful food and snow cones are free. Don’t miss face painting, games, a car show and trails information.  BC Kiwanis is working with Supervisor Thurman and Yavapai County Facilities to purchase additional playground equipment for Sycamore Park using Kiwanis funds.  Here is an example:
Beaver Creek School currently has a position open for a custodian. If there are any questions, please call the front office and ask for Lyndel Kelley. Applications can be printed off of the website at bcs.k12.az.us or picked up in the main office of the school. An IVP fingerprint clearance card is required.  Information on where to get the fingerprint card is also available from Lyndel.
The final nine fire hydrants (from the more than 50 total) have been installed thanks to our generous community benefactor Eddie Lodge. His bequest of $550,000 dollars toward the fire protection of Beaver Creek has been fulfilled. Fire Chief Terry Keller plans to put any remaining amount after the probate is completed toward the purchase of a water truck which will help serve those in the community whose residences aren’t located near water lines.
