CHP REPORT Parking collision, May 25 At approximately 10:55 a.m., Steven Andersen- Welch, 19, of Portola, was driving a 1992 Ford Aerostar southbound within the parking lot at 1060 Valley View Dr., Quincy, at a speed greater than 15 mph. Jason Choate, 40, of Quincy, was driving a 1998 Volvo garbage truck, stopped facing in a westerly direction, at the southwest corner of the parking lot. Choate mo- mentarily activated the garbage truck's horn, then placed the vehicle in reverse and began backing. At that same moment, Andersen- Welch drove his vehicle directly behind the garbage truck, intending to enter a parking space located at the southern end of the parking lot. The left rear of the garbage truck struck the right rear of the Ford Aerostar. No injuries were sustained as a result of this collision. Spin out, May 27 At approximately 3:45 p.m., Richard Swanson, 66, of Reno, was driving his 2006 Ford Focus eastbound on Highway 70 just west of Keddie Resort Road at approximately 45-50 mph. As Swanson negotiated a series of curves in the roadway, he allowed the right side of his vehicle to veer off the road and onto the loose dirt/gravel shoulder, which caused the vehicle to spin out of control. The Ford Focus then struck a metal storm drain on the south shoulder causing major damage to the front of the vehicle. Both driver and passenger were uninjured from the collision and waited on scene until the arrival of emergency personnel on scene. The collision remains under investigation at this time.

Weekly informational tips to Wildfire Season is here ..... help homeowners reduce the risk of losing their home are you Firewise? during a wildfire. As warmer temperatures and summer arrives, so does the threat of wildfires in Plumas County. Residents should be thinking of things they can do to making their properties safe in the event of wildfire. Piumas County is an area where wildfires are common and residents need to take steps to successfully "Live with Fire." Your local fire departments urge residents to create Defensible Space. What is Defensible Space? Defensible space is essential to improve your home's chance of surviving a wildfire. It's the buffer you create between a building on your property and the grass, trees, shrubs, or any wildland area that surrounds it. This space is needed to slow or stop the spread of wildfire and it protects your home from catching fire - either from direct flame contact or radiant heat. Defensible space is also important for the protection of the firefighters defending your home. Defensible Space Zones Two zones make up the required 100 feet of defensible space. Zone 1 Zone 1 extends 30 feet* out from buildings, structures, decks, etc. • Remove all dead plants, grass and weeds (vegetation) • Remove dead or dry leaves and pine needles from your yard, roof and rain gutters. • Trim trees regularly to keep branches a minimum of 10 feet from other trees. • Remove branches that hang over your roof and keep dead branches 10 feet away from your chimney. • Relocate wood piles into Zone 2. • Remove or prune flammable plants and shrubs near windows. • Remove vegetation and items that could catch fire from around and under decks. • Create a separation between trees, shrubs and items that could catch fire, such as patio furniture, wood piles, swing sets, etc. Zone 2 • Cut or mow annual grass down to a maximum height of 4 inches. • Create horizontal spacing between shrubs and trees. (See diagram) • Create vertical spacing between grass, shrubs and trees. (See diagram) • Remove fallen leaves, needles, twigs, bark, cones, and small branches. However, they may be permitted to a depth of 3 inches if erosion control is an issue. Research shows that how the house is built, the characteristics of the adjacent vegetation, and routine maintenance often determine which homes burn and which survive. Each week we will provide a tip to help the homeowner understand how homes ignite during wildfires and steps they can do to prepare for wildfire.
