BIG BEAR, CA/May 21, 2019– Big Bear Fire Department wants to educate children on the fire service. To achieve this goal, we have launched an exciting and motivational educational program using fire department trading cards. The program is designed to educate Big Bear’s elementary age students and get them excited about a future career in the fire service.

To earn a card, students must contact Big Bear firefighters and learn about each of the apparatus or people pictured on the 19 trading cards. Fire Chief Jeff Willis stated, “We know that when an interest in the fire service starts at a young age, we increase the probability of getting kids to become firefighters as adults. Big Bear Fire Department has been able to retain firefighters long-term when they are raised locally in Big Bear. This is an investment in our youth and our future.”

The program was the creation of Fire Captain Josh Mandolini who engaged 3rd grade students from the local elementary schools to write the descriptions for the cards. Fire Engineer Jon Bidwell is meeting with schools, introducing the program to the students at North Shore Elementary, Big Bear Elementary and Baldwin Lane Elementary Schools. Parents will be introduced to the program’s rules and prizes at the schools’ Open Houses occurring in May.

For additional information, please contact Big Bear Fire Department at [Click Here] or (909) 866-7566.

Doohickey, when I lived out by you, I recorded some of the coldest temperature I've experienced just a couple hundred feet below you, Baldwin is almost always colder than everyone. Because of your elevation, being that high up you're probably feeling the affects of the inversion!

Happy Birthday KJC! I had a period in the 80s where I had a metal detector. It was fun but I can't say I found anything very exciting. Was at the beach so maybe not the right place

Happy Birthday KJC!

Doo-That little breeze is warming things up most likely because it is my Birthday. Taking my Grandson to church today because he asked to go-3 years old. Going to start taking him on some hikes he seems ready to go, get him into running early. I bought a metal detector-we are going to have some great times together.. I'm 67 today, Have a great Day!

G'morning, why at East Baldwin, at times, it is so much warmer? I have a 1/2 dozen other outdoor temp gauges strategically placed and couple of 1" full opened water bottles, that are shaked if not frozen. We froze yesterday night, winds were from the NE mostly all night.

Highly unlikely QuantumBear. Unless something changes I don't think there will be enough snowmaking hours to have anything ready by this weekend.

Yes Berner! This is the kind of storm that may drop more rain down your way. But everyone should get some decent precipitation!
