Brent, you are awesome to be able to get laughs out of your heart surgery. Keep up with the healing process.

And Chazz - thanks much.
It's superb the planning and forethought you guys have for this event. Saw this post of info and just cracked up laughing big time. :D

I don't know if you are be facetious or not Brent? :? FYI Every year we (Ollie took care of it last year as I recall) have provided a printout with all the important emergency services and phone numbers for the area at the vehicle inspection. I'm not sure if Bruised FJ is aware of that or not?

If the joke went over my head please ignore the post. :oops:

Nope - I do think the planning and forethought into everything is fantastic from you guys. How many large gatherings like this are as well prepared? Just wish I could be there. Only joke may have been that the emergency info was posted after my heart attack. Didn't know it was standard posted info from last year as well.

I don't recall that Ollie posted it last year, but there was a very nice hand out. Hmmm or maybe that was FallFest? Ollie?

Hey guys:

Each run leader will have packets which will include information on several emergency contacts. We will also make this information available at the camp as well. More to follow.

Emergency Information

Accoriding to ABDSP officials, the entire park and surrounding areas are "911" procedures. While this is a good thing to know, it has limited value as cell coverage in much of the park is non-existent. You may be required to use your ham radio to get someone to make the call for you.

Alternate 911 #'s (24/7)


Borrego Springs Fire Department: 760 767-5436
Borrego Springs Sheriff's Department: 760 767-5656
NOTE: The Borrego Springs Fire Department has paramedics who are on duty at all times, as well as life flight helicopters.

If 911 can provide an adequate response to the emergency, they probably are the best option. That should be your first contact. To the extent that it becomes necessary to transport someone, there are only two viable options, east and west (Desribed below). The choice will depend on your location and your assessment of the travel time involved. Each of the hospitals listed have emergency rooms.

Palomar Memorial Hospital
555 East Valley Parkway
Escondido, CA 92025
(760) 739-3000
