This form is a request to formally identify the various water sources in the Loma Prieta / Summit area in order that they be available should we see big fires in future seasons. In fact even a fire isolated to a structure can consume upwards of 50,000 gallons of water!
Additionally, the intent is to be able to keep this information up to date and be able to communicate it to incident management teams during fires. As such, much or all of the information would be quasi-public. Please consider this in your replies. We would hope that this single aspect would not preclude a valuable resource from being made available. Unless directed otherwise, we would normally share this information locally with Cal Fire at Burrell and Santa Clara County Fire at Redwood Estates. In the event of a large extended incident (think: 1985 Lexington Hills Fire) water location may be shared with the incident management team as well.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Pictures of standpipes, driveway access or tanks and hardware are welcome as well. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance for your information and please feel free to forward this email to your friends and neighbors. If you have multiple locations to report, then just click on the link as many times as needed to generate a new document.
