Our communities are remotely located within the San Jacinto Mountains of Riverside County, California. Linked by only three roads, the communities are at an elevation of 4,000 to 6,300 feet. The region is subject to and has experienced wild land fires, heavy storms along with mud and rock slides and road closures. These communities experience large numbers of visitors year-round due to snow, art festivals, and various community activities encouraging visitation. It is of significant importance that the residences, local camps and all public traffic in the affected areas receive the emergency message over station WNKI578 and know that there are alternate means of communicating with neighboring communities, Counties or States when life- threating situations arise.
