This memo out from District Ranger Mike Mcintyre of the National Forest Service:
Subject: Upcoming Storm Event
Date: Thu, 3 Dec 2009 10:30:01 -0800
From: Mike McIntyre <firstname.lastname@example.org>
As we all know by now, there is a rain event forecasted to start as early as Sunday evening with the potential of rain over several days. We are not suspending any permits at this time but want you all to start to prepare for the potential of that occurring. We recommend, regardless of what the Forest Service does, that you seriously consider not to be in areas that burned during this rain event as from our last event, it is impossible to predict which areas will get rain and to what extent.
Bottom line is that personal safety is your responsibility but that does not give you the final say on whether you decide to stay or not within your permitted area. The Forest hopes that you will exercise the sound judgment to not put yourself in harms way and make that decision prior to any threats materializing.
