Lassen, Modoc and Plumas Counties Burn Permit Suspension Lifted

As of 8:00a.m. yesterday, October 10th, the burn permit suspension in Lassen, Modoc and Plumas Counties has been lifted.

Cal-Fire LMU Unit Chief Scott Packwood is formally rescinding the burn permit suspension and advises those possessing current and valid agriculture and residential burn permits can now resume burning on permissible burn days.

Burning may be suspended at any time due to predicted high winds or periods of critical fire weather. Cal-Fire burn permits will be required until the end of declared fire season.
CALFIRE burn permit suspended

While cooler temperatures have helped to diminish the threat of wildfire, a few warm days can dry out fuels making them receptive to fire. Property owners and residents are asked to use caution while conducting debris or agriculture burns and to maintain control of their fire at all times. Individuals can be held civilly and/or criminally liable for allowing a fire to escape their control and/or burn onto neighboring property.

Residents wishing to burn must verify it is a permissive burn day prior to burning by calling their local Air Pollution Control District.

Modoc County - (530) 233-6401
Plumas County -

Buckle Up Those Kids! CHP Emphasizes Child Passenger Safety

The California Highway Patrol and the California Office of Traffic Safety are working together to focus on child safety through the California Restraint Safety Education and Training campaign.

Reducing the number of children killed in collisions because they were not properly restrained is the goal of the year-long CARSEAT II campaign. The CHP will host educational seminars, classes, and child safety seat inspections throughout California to help meet the goal.
Chp Child Safety

"Making sure every child in your vehicle is buckled up in an appropriate car seat for their age and size is the easiest way to prevent serious injury or even death in the event of a crash," CHP Commissioner Warren Stanley said.

"Drivers should set an example by always buckling up and requiring everyone in the vehicle to wear their seat belt, no matter how short the trip."

California law requires a child be properly restrained in an appropriate child safety seat in the rear seat of a vehicle until they are at least eight years of age. For the best protection, all children should ride rear-facing until they reach the upper weight and height limits of their car seat.

Child passenger safety seats reduce the risk of fatal injury by 71 percent for infants and by 54 percent for toddlers in passenger cars, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has reported.

In California, preliminary 2017 data from the Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System of the CHP recorded 17 unrestrained children age seven and younger killed in traffic collisions in the state.

In addition to educational efforts, the CHP will be conducting enforcement operations concentrating on seat belt violations throughout the year with a special emphasis during the national "Click It or Ticket" campaign of OTS and national Child Passenger Safety Week.

More information regarding child passenger safety, child safety seats, and seat belt regulations, is available at any local CHP Area office.

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Many Register For X-Ray Films
October 11, 1944

More than 70 percent of the employees of the Fruit Growers Supply company registered for the chest X-ray films taken on Tuesday, October 3, under the auspices of the Lassen County Tuberculosis Association, Dr. J. W. Crever, president of the organization, announced.

"In some of the surveys held in industrial plants in other counties as many as 80 percent of the employees have taken the examination," Crever said.

It is estimated that the X-ray films of only five out of a hundred persons in industry examined indicated the need for further medical attention.

Free chest films will be offered to the high schools in Susanville and in Westwood. The employees of the Red River Lumber company also will have the opportunity of a free X-ray when the mobile unit visits the mill in Westwood.

The cost of the project is borne by the Lassen County Tuberculosis Association, a service made possible by purchase of tuberculosis Christmas seals. The mobile X-ray unit is owned by the California Tuberculosis Association.
