Thank You to the Big Bear Radford Firefighters
Destination Big Bear would like to take this time to thank the many men and woman who fought to protect our lovely mountain home! Thank you to the Radford Firefighters and crews of BBMR employees that put in the work to help protect Big Bear! Without your dedication and sacrifice many who were ordered to be evacuated could have lost their homes in this devastating fire. We are truly grateful for such an amazing team of protector and an incredible community surrounding you in support.

Many entities were recognized in the council meeting where Big Bear Lake Mayor, Rick Herrick, presented certificates of appreciation to first response teams that worked on the Radford Fire.

MORE INFO ABOUT THE BIG BEAR RADFORD FIRE
In addition to the now, 1,000+ acres of land, structures at Snow Summit and Bear Mountain were threatened. Evacuation orders have been lifted and local residents of the Moonridge neighborhood and Big Bear Lake near the village are able to return home safely. The cause is still undetermined at this time. The exact location was Converse Creek drainage in the Santa Ana River watershed in San Bernardino County CA. Now that the fire has wiped clean a vast majority of brush and trees, a new threat rears it’s ugly head. With our rainstorms coming in from the south, expect landslides in the HWY 38 area. Visitors and residents are urged to please avoid the area when traveling to and from Big Bear Lake. HWY 330 or HWY 18 are suggested alternate routes.
