SDCEA Assists with New Emergency Landing Zone

A crew from SDCEA prepared a decommissioned pole for use at the mill site.

Sangre de Cristo Electric Association (SDCEA) recently helped the Upper Chalk Creek Canyon Emergency Evacuation Committee in providing a pole for the raising of a windsock at the new emergency landing zone at the old Mary Murphy Mine mill site on the road to Hancock Pass south of St. Elmo.

The Chalk Creek Canyon committee has worked for some time to complete the project as part of their emergency preparedness planning. The site has been identified by the Colorado National Guard and the Chaffee County Office of Emergency Management as a great place from which to evacuate people in an emergency.
