Ranger Report June 30

Ranger Report June 30

Town of Lake Pleasant

Storm Damage Response: On June 21, Forest Rangers Nally, Thompson, and Kerr responded to a call for Forest Ranger assistance from the caretaker at Moffitt Beach State Campground. The caretaker reported several impassable roadways, downed trees and phone lines, and power outages in the area. Rangers helped clear storm damage in and around the campground and assisted local fire departments, the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, and highway officials with localized storm impacts.

Rangers, working through Hamilton County Sheriff's Office Dispatch, also responded to 911 calls, supplementing local resources. Rangers checked on campers at undeveloped and isolated State Land campsites in areas without cell service. On Powley Road in the town of Stratford, Ranger Thompson discovered the road impassable. The Ranger began cutting his way down the road where he made contact and assisted stranded campers.
