Yes, let’s talk about it...Thank you Alpine Rescue TeamLet’s talk about the viral post advising folks to change their voicemail when lost and low on cell phone battery power or their phone is dead. Posts like this get your attention, get liked by people who don't know better, are shared by folks trying to be helpful, and the algorithm spreads it like wildfire.1. Without a signal (connection to the cell system) YOU CAN'T CHANGE YOUR VOICEMAIL. The voicemail system resides with your cell provider. To change your outgoing message, you have to CALL into your voicemail and then navigate the menus, record a new greeting, confirm the new greeting, etc. YOU CANNOT DO THIS WITH NO SIGNAL.2. If your battery is low do not waste its power by calling your voice mail—or a friend or relative. Call 9-1-1 for help.3. If you have no signal, text for help to 9-1-1. Many, if not most, 9-1-1 centers can receive a text.4. Text takes much less power, is far more likely to get through, will automatically retry many times if you have spotty service, leaves record others can see and can give you an indication that it got thru. BTW, because of the automatic retries, you can compose and hit send on a text and then get your phone as high as possible to improve the chances of getting the message out.5. Stay put. Okay, if you're lost or broken down and you've called for help (assuming you have signal and battery) please stay in one location—UNLESS YOU MUST MOVE FOR SAFETY REASONS. Changing your location makes our job more difficult. Trying to reach someone whose GPS location we have (within a circle, of course) is faster for us than trying to nail down a moving target. STAY PUT.6. Maximize battery life. In order to make the battery last longer, turn off everything you do not need. Close all apps. Turn off WiFi and Bluetooth. Don't use your cell phone as a GPS/map device and especially do not use the compass if your phone has one -- the compass feature in some phones is a serious battery drain. Pull out your map and compass and/or use a dedicated GPS unit. You may be instructed, by text, to turn your phone off and text back at a specific time. Also, keep your phone just a little warm with some body heat or a handwarmer. Thank you to J.E. Bloodgood, who posted the meat of this information on Colorado 14ers! ...

Great news, please note the details and continued fire restrictions.The San Bernardino National Forest, with some exceptions, will reopen on Thursday, September 23. We are thankful that overall fire activity in California has decreased, allowing more of our firefighters to return to their home forest. It's important to note, however, that fire restrictions will remain in effect. Open-flame campfires and BBQs, smoking and target shooting, among other activities, will continue to be prohibited.Upon reopening, staff will begin taking down closure signs and reopening gates as fast as possible. Patience is appreciated during this process if some areas appear to still be closed on Thursday. Two foothill areas, however, will remain closed for public safety. Both of these sit in areas with dry vegetation where fires can move rapidly under current conditions:- Closed to all traffic, including pedestrians: City Creek Road (1N09) between Hwy 330 and Bear Creek, Alder Creek Road (1N16) and Santa Ana Road (1N13) to limit visitors becoming entrapped on these mid-slope roads. Additionally, illegal target shooting has been rampant in this area despite fire restrictions, signage and law enforcement presence.- Closed to vehicles: Big Tree Cucamonga Road (1N34), a 12-mile mid-slope road that is one-way-in, one-way-out.Other areas where long-term closures were previously in place, such as the El Dorado and Apple fire burn scars, will remain closed. The one change will be the area around Lytle Creek, which was closed due to the 819-acre South Fire (100% contained) in late August; that closure area will reopen Thursday.As always, visitors are encouraged to "know before you go" by direct messaging us or calling ranger stations to check on the open status of specific recreation facilities, such as campgrounds, which are beginning to close for the season. Thank you! ...
