For the first time ever, the Town of Mammoth Lakes has entered into negotiations regarding the possible purchase of a portion of Sam’s Woodsite.
The property, situated at 5699 Minaret Road, between Meridian Boulevard and Main Street, is the site of some of Mammoth’s most popular summer events, including the wildly successful annual Festival of Beers and Bluesapalooza.
The whole Woodsite totals eight acres of woodland that borders on the Sierra Star Golf Course.
The strength of any community during a disaster is in its people, a fact recognized by professional first responders across the country who rely on teams of trained community members for everything from disaster field reports to traffic control.
Mammoth Lakes is no different and beginning next week, a new round of Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training kicks off, with an introduction to the training on Thursday, Oct. 3 at the Best Western Conference Room from 6-7:30 p.m.
Three all-day Saturday sessions will follow, beginning on Oct. 19.
