To All,

I went to a hearing regarding a cell tower that is going to be improperly placed in my forest community. I found out that my Care2 petition had been removed from the files and the Board of Supervisors never had an opportunity to see it. I plan to submit the petition again and would like to turn in even more signatures. Please help me by signing the petition below. 

Stop a major fire hazard to a forest community - the lives of many animals are at risk - SW Willow Flycatcher & Arroyo Toad - endangered species. Thanks.

I could only say a little in my petition and focused on fire, but within one quarter of a mile of the proposed cell tower site, that I am trying to stop, is McCall Memorial Park (Equestrian). A non-embedded cell tower (one that stands alone and is taller than anything in the environment), like this one, in a dry lightning area (an area where lightning hits the ground even when it is not raining) will bring more lightning into the area. Lightning is not predictable so it could hit any place in the general area. Hikers, horses, equestrians, and any other living thing in the area will be put at risk. Lightning can travel hundreds of feet underground. When a horse is around the lightning will be attracted to its horseshoes and it is usually always fatal. Also, this general area has nearly all metal types of fencing. When lightning hits it or is attracted to it the lightning will travel the whole length of the fencing and any animal near or touching the fencing is usually killed. Please sign the above petition and help me stop the placement of this cell tower in this area. There are safe alternative embedded cell tower sites in the area. Below is an example of how bad it can be.
