An advisory encouraging visitors to postpone their trips to the Big Bear Valley was signed today, Sept. 10,  by the leaders of the Big Bear Fire Department, San Bernardino County Fire, CAL FIRE and San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. It is being issued in response to yesterday’s expanded evacuation order and closure of the Highway 39 corridor between Angelus Oaks and Onyx Summit.

 Visitors are encouraged to postpone trips until the fire threat has passed.

The advisory is not an evacuation warning, however residents should be prepared in case a warning or order is announced. Residents are highly encouraged to sign up for San Bernardino County’s Telephone Emergency Notification System for emergency notifications and updates to be sent to their phones.
