Last night 8/11/18 we had micro burst winds and dry lightning which blew a live pine tree down that hit the high voltage power lines and started the tree on fire.
The membership responded in a large way, the Mini pumper and brush truck were taken to the site. The fire was extinguished quickly and the surrounding area was inspected for hot spots while we waited for Bridger Valley Elec..
Thank you all who responded!
It has been decided to ban campfires until conditions improve. Thank You in advance for your cooperation.
Curretly we have 3 brush trucks which have a capacity of 750 gallons of water. Response time from from Evanston is about 1 hour.

The locks on all gates have been changed and we would ask that you DO NOT try to use your old keys!!
The old keys are ruining the locks especially when trying to force it to work in the new lock.
This damages the tumblers requiring replacements.
Also PLEASE do not spray anything into the locks. Sprays or lubricants of any type, gums up the locks and makes
Them need to be replaced/repaired. We have had several locks need to be replaced already because of
people trying to force the locks or using graphite sprays to “loosen” them up. PLEASE just don’t do it!
Cost of New Locks and Keys was $18,000.00.
Let’s use our heads and not add MORE costs to the keys, locks and gates.
We have also had reports of thefts and damages to owner’s property. If it is not your property STAY OUT!!
We are trying to improve our security and make it a fun safe place for all.
As always: if you are expecting guests, please ask them to wait at the gate and plan to meet them there at a specific time.
We have had some guests try to rush the gate when owners are opening. This is not only rude, but extremely dangerous. I have seen an owner almost run over by a rude guest.
The 15 mile an hour speed limit is always a problem – Please slow down, it is for your safety, protects our roads, and keeps the dust down, also the 15 Mph speed limit applies to cars and trucks as well as 4 wheelers and side by sides!
Most importantly enjoy your time and be courteous to your neighbors – just like at home only with much more beauty.

The fire had burned nearly 50 acres and was zero percent contained as of 8 p.m. on Thursday, according to a tweet from Utah wildfire officials. Officials are calling it the Monviso Fire, after a nearby evacuated subdivision.
My name is Bryce Jones. I am the new fire safety board member for Manor Lands.
Thank you for being careful with your fires over Memorial Day weekend. There were no incidents. Just a reminder that with a mild winter, these next four months will be fire hazardous. EVERYONE has to be vigilant about fire control. No stove coals dumped outside until they have cooled at least 72 hours. Put all cigarette butts in approved firepits. When you leave, ensure your fire is completely out.
During work day, we will sound the fire alarm so that everyone knows what it sounds like. Please report back to me if you cannot hear the alarm from your lot.
We have 4 fire trucks that are all prepped to use. We need to train volunteers to use them. This training will probably occur on 14 July. More to follow.
