Many of the victims of the infamous Camp Fire in Paradise, CA died because they didn't know to evacuate!
The fire spread so fast that the evacuation orders never reached them.
The smart reverse 911 system was not operational and personnel that were tasked to go door-to-door to request they evacuate had to leave the area due to the heat and flames.
Emergency Operations Coordinator Broshears said, "Other towns could save lives if they taught residents to shelter from fire and got more of them to sign up for alerts."
Has anyone on Lindbergh Lake Road been taught how to "shelter in place"? Probably not!
The Lindy Alert is neither intended to replace 911, Smart 911, the Forest Service nor any other Public Emergency Services informing residents of impending danger.
Always call 911 first!
The Swan Valley Quick Response Unit (QRU) and Swan Valley Volunteer Fire Department are aware of the Lindy Alert.
