We have received many calls regarding the flyover of a helicopter in the YLP area. Everyone in the park should have received a call from PG&E stating that they would be in the park flying approximately 300 feet above power lines for inspection. Most residents did not answer the call or hear the message as it may have come over as a spam caller.
They will be here for a couple weeks and if you have any questions or concerns you can call them for more information at 1 (800) 743-5000. Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) has begun daily aerial fire detection patrols across hundreds of miles of its service area. The patrols are to assist the U.S. Forest Service, CAL FIRE and local fire agencies with early fire detection and response this summer. PG&E is launching the patrols this week due to an increase in fire danger from rising temperatures, coupled with the potential for winds.
Hope this helps alleviate concerns residents may have.
