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!

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.

This Week in Beaver Creek 11/3/2016

Dear Neighbors
The highs have dropped to the low 70’s and we may get a little rain before Saturday which is expected to be mostly sunny with calm winds.  Such perfect fall weather, the leaves are dropping and swirling slowly to the ground.  Two events that we always look forward to are scheduled for this weekend:  the Arts & Crafts & Bake Sale at the BC Adult Center on Friday and Saturday and the BC Trails Day on Saturday in Sycamore Park.  Please enjoy both if you get the chance.
Also this weekend there is the bird walk at Montezuma Well, a Yavapai Apache Nation celebration at Montezuma Castle, and the Rimrock Writers meet in the BC Library.  Sunday is Mitzvah Day.  If you would like to get involved, some information and a contact number is at the end of this email.
Mrs Sam Fisk shares the following: “I am writing you to let you know we saw a Bobcat behind our fence at 3215 E. Montezuma Ave. this afternoon (10/27) about 2:45…… This was a large bobcat… about 2 1/2 to 3′ tall at the shoulder…. prowling along our back fence…. we are going to take precautions… we suggest anyone with small pets in the area do the same.  2 years ago a bobcat came down about this time of the year and killed a neighbor’s cat, I saw this happen…… I assume this guy is hungry.  Just thought it would be good to let folks know…”
Ready to enjoy autumn!

ADOT Update:  Restrictions begin today (10/31) on SR-260 to Accommodate Roundabout Construction near I-17
Travel restrictions and lane closures will begin Monday, Oct. 31, for both east- and westbound travel on State Route 260 as construction begins on the SR 260 roundabout at Industrial Drive in Camp Verde (milepost 218 to 219) just east of the Interstate 17 junction.
Lane and travel restrictions will be in place 24 hours a day and will be maintained until late February, 2017. A 10-foot-wide load restriction will also be in place during operations.
The completed roundabout will keep traffic flowing smoothly in all directions as well as in and out of businesses. At present, traffic on Industrial Drive can only make right turns onto SR 260, while those on SR 260 can wait in long left-turn bays to get to businesses or turn around.
For more information on this project, please call Coralie Cole, ADOT Senior Community Relations Officer, at 602.501.4899 or email at ccole@azdot.gov.

ADOT Update: Roundabout will Improve Safety, Traffic Flow in Camp Verde near I-17

 

A roundabout project on State Route 260 just east of Interstate 17 will enhance safety, and help visitors and residents better navigate a busy commercial area in Camp Verde. The roundabout will be where SR 260 intersects with Industrial Drive, in an area where many travelers pull over for gasoline, a bite to eat or a cup of coffee. 
The improvement will keep traffic flowing smoothly in all directions, as well as in and out of businesses. At present, traffic on Industrial Drive can only make right turns onto SR 260, while those on SR 260 can wait in long left-turn bays to get to businesses or turn around.  The Arizona Department of Transportation project, which will begin in the coming weeks and is set for completion in the spring, also will add sidewalks on the north side of SR 260 between Cliffs Parkway and Main Street, and on the south side of SR 260 between Seventh Street and Main Street.
While there will be traffic restrictions throughout the project, access to local businesses and properties will be maintained throughout.

Dear Neighborsbats_halloween.jpg
 
This weekend has the gift of ideal weather to enjoy local and Verde Valley activities.  So, don’t miss Bat Weekend at Montezuma Castle and the Anniversary Celebration at Grace Community Lutheran Church in addition to just taking advantage of the ideal time to be outdoors.
Today, Saturday, is a special opportunity for seniors 60+ to get dental screenings at the local Beaver Creek Adult Center.  NAU students supervised by Dr Pacheco from NAU and our Montezuma dentist Dr Carter are doing the exams for free.  Many times, we hear seniors wish that they could get out and volunteer like they used to.  Well, this is an opportunity to both get good information and to help our college students get the training and experience that they need.  Please donate an hour of your time to help them learn.


See you outside,
