AlertWildfire.org and Big Bear Mountain Resorts have partnered to bring several fire cameras to the Big Bear area. These cameras act like virtual fire lookouts in that they're located on high places with great views of the surrounding area. The cameras can be panned, tilted and zoomed to locations to look for smoke from fires. The first Big Bear camera went live this morning: [Click Here]
It's the very first camera in the thumbnail view of cameras: Bear Peak South.

For those not familiar with AlertWildfire cameras, if you click on the image above the words "Bear Peak South", that will bring that camera view up in the large image at the top left of the page. If you right click on that large image, you can view a time lapse from that camera. On the upper right side of the page, you'll see a map view with a shaded triangle showing the area where the camera is looking at the moment. This camera is located on Bear Peak (for the skiers/snowboarders, it's the top of Geronimo). Over the coming weeks, we'll be installing many more cameras at both Bear Mountain and Snow Summit.

3 more cameras were just added to the page! [Click Here]
The camera named Bear Peak South2 rotates every few seconds to provide a 360 degree view from the top of Bear Peak/Geronimo and is located right next to the other AlertWildfire camera we installed up there a few weeks back.
The Bear Peak North camera is also at the top of Bear Peak/Geronimo and looks over the Big Bear Valley from about the dam to Sugarloaf Mountain.
The Bear Mtn South camera is located right next to Ben's San Gorgonio Wilderness cam: [Click Here]

Next up on the install list are some cameras over at Snow Summit!

The Snow Summit South camera came online today! [Click Here] This camera looks over the western portion of the San Gorgonio Wilderness and Angelus Oaks. It can also zoom down to portions of the Inland Empire.

Those should be quite useful even though I hope they won't be needed...

Just a follow up as I posted in chat.... We've now installed 6 new HD cameras so far with at least 2 more coming.

This will saturate the Big Bear Valley pretty well. We'll work with the USFS and now be able to pinpoint the location of a fire immediately making for a quicker response! Good stuff!

Stay tuned for more!
