The Elk Volunteer Fire Department invites you to its 15th Annual Summer BBQ to be held Saturday, July 27, from noon to 4 p.m. at the Greenwood Community Center on Highway 1 in downtown Elk. Once again, department members and friends are preparing to serve up grilled tri-tip, smoked chicken and portabella mushroom entrees, along with beans, garden salad, bread, homemade dessert and coffee. Kids age 6 and under eat free. And, as always, Elk’s Famous Margaritas will be available, along with beer, wine and soft drinks. Emergency vehicles and equipment will be on display at the BBQ. Kids can meet Smokey Bear and play in the portable pond. Weather permitting, you can inspect CalStar and/or REACH helicopters and greet their crews. And throughout the day, music by Wild Elk will keep things festive. This year, Phoenix Fire Defense will be on hand to inspect, recharge and demonstrate proper use of your personal fire extinguishers. In addition, emergency and wildfire preparedness resources, including information on 911 address signs, will be available. There will be a raffle featuring items donated by local inns, merchants and community members. Raffle tickets are available now at the Elk Store, Matson Mercantile and the Elk Garage, Queenie’s Roadhouse Café, and at the BBQ. You don’t need to be present to win. Serving the community for 63 years, the EVFD has a small but dedicated roster of 20 volunteers, four of whom are Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs). The department maintains a fleet of seven firefighting vehicles of mixed type and an ambulance located at three stations spread out over a large, 55-square-mile service district. As the department’s only fundraiser, the annual BBQ generates critical funds to maintain the department’s facilities, vehicles and equipment. Last year’s donations helped fund the expansion of the firehouse on Greenwood Ridge. Please come out and support the volunteers who help you in emergencies. But kindly leave the dogs at home.

BRENTWOOD — A 1-year-old boy was taken to a trauma center after a weekend fall from a second-story house window, authorities said. Just before 6:45 p.m. Sunday, firefighters responded to a home in the 900 block of Princess Way for a report of the fall, East Contra Costa Fire Protection District battalion chief Jake Gonzalez said Monday night.

BYRON — All lanes have reopened after a major-injury crash under investigation by California Highway Patrol officers Tuesday evening. Around 5:40 p.m., officers received word of the collision involving at least one sport-utility vehicle on Byron Highway at Clifton Court Road. When officers arrived at the scene, they found a white older-model Chevy Suburban in a ditch, with a black Honda nearby. The roadway was closed to all traffic just before 6 p.m., with a Sig-alert issued at 6:53 p.m. and lifted just before 7:20 p.m. Paramedics and East Contra Costa Fire Protection District firefighters responded to the scene, with calls for an air ambulance “due to the remote area and involved parties injuries,” the CHP said. Five people suffered moderate to major injuries, with CalStar medical helicopters transporting at least two patients from a helispot set up in a nearby field to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, according to East Contra Costa Fire battalion chief Jake Gonzalez. The CHP’s Golden Gate Division air-operations helicopter took one person who suffered serious injury to Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley. No word was immediately available on patients’ conditions Tuesday night. CHP-Contra Costa is investigating this collision. Contact George Kelly at 408-859-5180.

MORGAN HILL — A Santa Clara County sheriff’s deputy is recovering after being bitten by a rattlesnake during an operation to root out illegal marijuana growing operations in unincorporated Morgan Hill. The deputy was hiking in rugged terrain east of Mount Hamilton about 1 p.m. when he was bitten on the leg, according to the sheriff’s office. A CALSTAR air ambulance was dispatched to the scene, but the deputy and his team ended up walking a mile to their vehicle and driving to the copter landing zone. Each member was carrying 40 to 60 pounds of gear. Around 1:50 p.m., the deputy was flown to a hospital. He did not receive anti-venom and was listed in stable condition late Thursday afternoon, according to the sheriff’s office. The operation by the sheriff’s office Marijuana Eradication Team kicked off about 4 a.m. Thursday. Deputies were scouting the area for possible illegal pot farms and located evidence of one including hundreds of yards of irrigation pipe, camping supplies and mounds of trash. “The incident reminds us of the inherent dangers that deputies face each and every day trying to keep the public safe,” Sheriff Laurie Smith said in a statement. “Illegal marijuana grows and drug manufacturers create an immense danger to not only law enforcement, but the community as a whole. We are wishing our deputy a speedy recovery.” The sheriff’s office said the encounter also serves as a reminder that rattlesnakes are more active during hot weather. Hikers are advised to watch their step and wear protective clothing. Check back for updates. [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-tag”]

The Mendocino County Sheriff’s department held its fourth annual Search and Rescue Helicopter Training at Lake Mendocino over the weekend to help be more prepared and efficient during search operations. The weekend training brought out over 26 agencies from across Mendocino County and the Bay Area, including the California National Guard, Mendocino County Search and Rescue, Napa County Sheriff Volunteer Search & Rescue, Cal Fire Mendocino Unit, Ukiah Valley Fire Authority, Cal OES, Sonoma County Sheriff’s Helicopter Unit, CalStar/Reach Air Ambulance Service, California Explorer Search and Rescue, Medstar/Ukiah Ambulance and the U.S. Coast Guard. Search and rescue dog handlers learn how to load a rescue basket at Lake Mendocino Saturday morning.(photo by Peter Armstrong) The Sheriff’s Office main goal was to train all of their search and rescue volunteers with the tools available to make them better prepared to deal with all the different variables that come with search operations. The day involved learning how to get rescued people onto helicopters, finding and tracking people, and getting instructions on the best and safest search and rescue practices. Mendocino County has different climates and terrains in different parts of the county, from the coast to forests to more rugged, mountainous terrain closer to inland Mendocino County, leading to separate search and rescue techniques for different areas. Calfire copter 101 lifts off as the Coast Guard copter hovers over a training group. (photo by Peter Armstrong) The Sheriff’s Office said the training helps get people to locations to search faster and rescue people sooner. The sheriff office says that it takes approximately 100 hours to explore 100 acres in Mendocino County, but the use of rescue helicopters makes it easier to search for people and brings down the number of hours it takes.
