  As per the Forest Storm Response Guide, I am issuing a
Storm Warning due to the high probability of hazardous weather/
rain event occurring next week.  We will be monitoring the
reports/predictions from the Weather Service and will be making
a decision in the next day or so about if and when to go to Storm
Alert.  It is at Storm Alert that Forest Service residents and
employees are relocated out of the affected area, public access
is prohibited in the affected area, and Special Use Permits may
be suspended in the affected area.
  Bottomline is that personal safety is your responsibility
but that does not give you the final say on whether you decide
to stay or not.  I hope that you will exercise the sound judgment
to not put yourself in harms way and make that decision prior to
any threats materializing.
  On another note, Los Angeles County Public Works has
installed gates on their roads within the Station Burn area to
help facilitate any hard closures that they implement.  These
are their gates and they control who they will give permission
to go through the gates.  We have a lock on the gates and I know
there are some of you non-FS persons that have keys to access the
Forest Service locks due to the nature of your presence on the
  That being said, our lock on the County's gates is only to
be accessed by Forest Service persons in official status.  If
a non-forest service person is found to have access through the
gate using a Forest Service key, then the key will be returned
to the District and no key issued to that person in the future.
If you feel the need to get access through the County gates,
you will need to contact Mark Caddick of LACo Public Works/
Roads at 661-947-7173  x222.
