The County, in collaboration with the Idyllwild Fire Department and local Mile-High Radio Club, identified locations for upgrades and installation of the outdoor warning speakers, along with the integration of the existing traveler information stations system. The locations include existing fire stations, county property, local water district, schools, and private associations such as the Boy Scout camp. The work will be performed in multiple phases: the first phase consisting of planning and design followed by construction which will include procurement, installation, testing, and activation of the system. Construction will be implemented in several phases depending on the ability to get real estate agreements in place and obtain entitlements. The Idyllwild and San Jacinto Mountains Emergency OWS/TIS Project will improve public alert and warning systems to ensure the dissemination of reliable, relevant and actionable information to residents, visitors and others enjoying the Idyllwild and the San Jacinto Mountain areas giving the opportunity to provide warnings in the event of emergencies. 37 OWS sites, which include 4 TIS sites, have been established with 7 alternative OWS sites and 1 alternative TIS site throughout the Castille Canyon, Twin Pines, Anza Valley, Idyllwild/Pine Cove Village, Mountain Center, Pine Meadows, and Pinyon Pines communities. The area comprising the Project sites and equipment would occupy less than 0.1 acre on sites near residential communities surrounded by open-space and residential development. Additional staffing would not be required for the Project.
