Community Safety and Awareness Report for Wednesday, August 24th, 2011

•Six Rivers National Forest Supervisor Tyrone Kelley reminds forest visitors to be careful while recreating on forest lakes and rivers, especially on the Trinity River.   The Bureau of Reclamation is increasing releases from Lewiston Dam into the Trinity River for Hoopa Tribal ceremonies purposes.   These increased flows will result in higher water levels, swifter currents, colder water, and submerged hazards. The Water Safety Coalition of Northwest California also provides more information on water safety at fs.usda.gov/srnf.   For additional information about the river flow, contact Robin Schrock at the Trinity River Restoration Program Office, 530-623-1800 or e-mail [email protected].

•The newly-installed tsunami siren located on Trinidad Rancheria property near the Trinidad Harbor will be tested on Thursday, August 25th, at 10am.  The test will consist of multiple soundings of the siren between 10 and 11am to calibrate the sound output.  Some area residents, members of the Redwood Coast Tsunami Work Group, and participating representatives of various local, state, and federal agencies will observe and record various test activities.

•Tune in tonight at 7pm for Homegrown Tomatoes. That’s tonight, from 7 to 8pm, right here, on KMUD.

This concludes the Community Safety and Awareness Report, which can be read online at kmud.org and heard weekdays at 11am, 3 pm, and as needed here, on KMUD.
