Places I'd Like To Work a Shift or Two

This station has a nice look about it -

The Saint and I found this station while touring the San Bernardino Mountains. It protects the community of Forest Falls, a community within the San Bernardino National Forest. It does not appear that High Rise responses, railroads or freeways are a community threat; nor did there appear to be a large homeless population. This works for me. The station looked very well maintained and has that rustic mountain feel.

I thought the prepared bear guarding the front of the station was a nice touch. He kept an eye on me and made sure that I didn't apply any K.B.F.P.D. stickers to the station or equipment.

I didn't see any cars around, so this might be a paid-call station. Regardless, it presented very well. Strong work by the Forest Falls team.

Thanks for reading,


  1. Don't know if they're still there, but there used to be some great hiking trails in Forest Falls. That station, if memory serves, was the ICP for a large scale missing person search way back when I was in medic school... Eons ago.

    It's nice to see pic's from the West, still looking as beautiful as I remember. Jersey is nice, but it's no Sierras or Angeles NF.

    Thanks for writing!

  2. Lunchbox - That canyon has several trail heads that originate from it, they are USFS trails and are heavily used. As a kids, my old man and i back-packed several of them. They are beautiful indeed.

    I love the mountains of so cal, but as there are several bajillion people who live within an hours drive of them, I prefer the east face of the Sierras.

    Thanks for reading.
