PMCPOA Radio Station AM 1610
During inclement weather when the power stays on, you can tune into PMCPOA’s radio station, AM 1610, for regular updates, or call 242-3857 after hours for current conditions. The radio station is updated every night around 3-4 a.m. with current weather and road conditions, and more often if we are having a snowstorm because the situation can change quickly. It’s a good idea to keep a transistor radio in the house that operates on batteries in case of a power outage.
Links to Outside Emergency Agencies
Below are links to outside agencies that post information helpful to Pine Mountain Club residents. Please note that for situations that are non-emergencies to PMC, the Association receives information from these same sources. In situations that are immediate emergencies to Pine Mountain Club, the General Manager is in direct communications with emergency responders and will keep the membership informed through a variety of means.

Bears in PMC
From the General Manager in PMC Regarding Bears
Most of you know that bears have been a serious challenge for the community this season. The POA has received many inquiries about how to mitigate property damage.
To clarify, PMC’s current EC Code 7.04 L states “ Electric fencing is not permitted, excluding pet parameter electric fences”.
Those of you who attended last week's presentation by CA Fish & Wildlife were told about products that can protect your structures. These electrified mats to be placed in front of doors and windows, or electrified bungee cord systems ARE allowed at PMC. They can provide options to protect your home, and do not require Environmental Control preapproval.
Here is a link to some of these products:

As shown on these pages, warning signs for humans are also provided. Thankfully, although we have smarter-than-the-average-bears here, they can’t read!
PMC strongly recommends a certified electrician install some of these items, particularly the wiring around windows and doors. You may also consider contacting your insurance provider to determine if there is any benefit under your policy to install any of these devices.
On behalf of the Board of Directors,
Todd F. Greisen, CACM, CMCA, AMS
