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.

Can the robot put that link up on the main menu?

Don't blame me! I was left unsupervised!

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!

New if we can just get some premixed windshield washer fluid that is rated for freezing that would be great....silly CA crap.

Lol Wisconsin has huge domes of salt that get depleted every winter....the roads literally turn white from all the salt. Not super for your car but not awful if you wash it off after each storm.

We have the undercarriage wash here in Idaho too.

I was in Colorado and the local car washes would also spray the bottom of your car to get the product off of your car as soon as the snow cleared. This stuff my work but it messes up your car. The car wash in BBL would be smart to add an undercarriage wash system.

Brine vs salt, either one is completey soluble in water and I believe snow is a form of water. The salt crystals dissolve to form a brine, brine is brine, they buy the salt from a vendor I am familiar, my company I worked for bought tons of salt per day It is the water based form that causes corrosion on the road and on your car. As far as brine sticking to the road this is BS, get it wet no difference. Your tires have fun disturbing it.

Being from the Midwest i am very familiar with road salt and brines. We towed our 2004 Honda CRV to Wisconsin behind our motorhome. First thing my brother asked, what year is your car. Brine, salt will rust out your car in 5 years. In northern Michigan they use calcium brines from the oil field. Brine is technically is no different from its solid counter part.

So where is the salt going according to them?

Anyone remember from physics class The Law of Conservation of Mass ?

Quess it goes down micro black holes

East coast salt test that is...

Funny razz, passed right by the brine truck. Immediately behind it was two CHP suv's, presumably doing an easy coast salt test...what bothers me is how much salt is going into the lake. Where's the masses of bluegill and sunfish that we used to spend afternoons catching and throwing back?

A 5 gal bucket should suffice. Just give Wisconsin's DOT a call..

Cheese brine, where can I buy some to marinate my politicians butts?

The Sierras use it but supposedly CA banned it decades ago due to being environmentally unfriendly and the wildlife are drawn to it, birds & brake for the dear munching in road! Wisconsin uses a cheese brine, go figure.
