Often times rescues are hindered due to lack of cell service, being on an illegal trail, or even lack of knowledge about the park itself. So, it is great to see this partnership between Orange County Fire Authority and Orange County Parks to make parks safer for visitors.
Together, the two agencies have labeled benches in Peters Canyon to aid in rescues. So, instead of calling 911 to report an emergency and saying, the injured person is by the park bench… it can be reported as the injured person is by park bench #12. This should reduce response times considerably.
Stay safe, and happy trails!
