Huntington Seeks $20,000 OHV grant!
The department is applying for a $20,000 grant from the California's State Parks Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) Division to purchase medical supplies, and radios this year. The funds will support our trail monitoring and rescue program on OHV and snowmobile trials in the High Sierra this summer and next winter. The grant requres that the department provide a 26% match for the funds the OHV Division gives us. We will provide that match in firefighter labor and "rental" of our heavy rescue Snow-Cat shown right. The medical supplies are consumables that are replaced every year and the high power digital radios will allow our monitoring and rescue teams to communicate with each other and with our partner agencies which is often difficult on remote OHV routes.
We invite your comments and suggestions that will improve this grant so that Off-Highway Vehicle recreation in our area is even safer!
The entire preliminary grant application can be viewed on or after March 4th on The California Parks OHV Grant site at:
