LAS VEGAS – The devastating Camp Fire in Northern California destroyed more than 10,000 homes, including some belonging to first responders.

While they worked tirelessly to evacuate, rescue and recover victims, their own homes burned to the ground.

The Nevada Highway Patrol and other local agencies have stepped up to help their fellow first responders in need.

Items to help first responders in Northern California who lost everything during the deadly Camp Fire this month were being loaded into a truck.  

“They were all working and evacuating and rescuing, saving the people of their community and while they were doing that, they could not do anything to protect their homes, they couldn’t save anything from their homes,” said NHP Sgt. Kathleen Vonk.

That devastation moved Sgt. Vonk with NHP to try and help.

Her efforts led to other agencies in the valley along with NHP substations around the state to contribute items which included everything from uniforms and equipment to animal supplies for their families.

“Some of the things are for children,” Sgt. Vonk said. “A lot of people brought wrapped Christmas gifts, little fake Christmas trees with ornaments to make the holidays a little bit easier.”

“Our law enforcement community here is pretty tight. We like to help out where we can,” said Katrina Rothmeyer, public information officer, Henderson Police Department.

There was an overflow of donations.

“Fantastic problem to have,” said Travis Smaka, NHP public information officer. “Turns out we needed a lot more space so we had to open up one of our garage bays.”

This is the first stop of many. The RV and truck plan to visit other NHP area commands throughout the state to pick up supplies before the final drop off in Northern California.

“We’re going to meet with RV’s of Sacramento because we facilitated the delivery of 10 RVs and $500 gift cards to all 27 CHP officers, troopers , dispatchers, personnel who lost their home,” said Smaka said.

Offering support to help their counterparts rebuild their lives.

The truck and RV plan to deliver the items Saturday afternoon in Chico, California.

Top Christmas gifts for the RVer

Zion National Park Vacation Rentals, Hotels & More Lodging Options

Everyone loves getting and giving gifts, especially if you’re on the road most or part of the year. Here are the must-have Christmas gifts for your wish list or the RVer in your life.

Propane Fire Pit

The propane fire pit is an alternative option when there is a burn ban or no open wood fires permitted. Design options are limitless, it lights quickly, it’s portable, and cleanup is a snap.

Please know the laws and follow them when using any type of fire pit. A propane fire pit can be purchased at Walmart, Amazon, Home Depot and others.

The Zero Gravity Chair

This chair is made with an outdoor-grade material and coating to brave the elements. It is comfortable, portable, and ergonomically correct. Unlike most camping chairs, this chair will not be blown away in the wind.

So, kick back, put up your feet, and relax by the fire. You cannot go wrong with gifting a zero-gravity chair! Your friends will thank you for it.

Gift Cards

Gift cards are becoming more and more popular especially with the RV community. They are small, easy to use and everyone loves eating out.

Just about everyone sells gift cards: gas stations, restaurants, movie theaters, department stores, and stores that cater to the camping community. Gift cards to craft stores like Hobby Lobby, Michael’s or Joann’s are always appreciated because many RVers like to make crafts.

Memberships/RV Clubs

Park memberships are gifts every RVer loves! The America the Beautiful Pass is a pass to over 2,000 federal recreation sites.

Passport America, known as the original and the world’s largest 50 percent discount camping club, offers discounts at over 1,800 campgrounds. Harvest Hosts is a mere $49 and gives you access to over 600 unique locations across North America, allowing you to stay one night free.

Kitchen/Cooking Gadgets

Instant Pots are multifunctional and easy to store. They do the job of seven kitchen appliances. They are easy to clean, and you can prepare a meal for one or four.

The newest must have kitchen item is the 3-in-1 Breakfast Station. Brew your coffee, cook your eggs and meat all while toasting your bread all at once.

Outdoor Games

Most RVers spend their time outdoors, so what better gifts to give than outdoor games like cornhole, tennis, basketball, ladder golf, frisbee, KanJam and bocce ball.

Indoor Games

These include cards, Skipbo, Phase 10, Dice, and board games for the rainy days.

Personalized Gifts

For example, T-shirts with their favorite team logo, cute RV sayings, and in today’s world, their “travel” name. Many families come up with a “traveling” name that they use on their social media accounts.

This allows their followers to find them. I used The Fun Family for my “traveling” name. A personalized gift is well-received and can be used year-round.

When buying a gift for a fellow RVer, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Is there room for it?
  • Is it breakable?
  • Is it useful?
  • Is it on their wish list?
  • Is it something you would use?

Merry Christmas and happy camping!

911 Dispatcher Praised for Ending 6-Hour Standoff With Suicidal Man

Zion National Park Vacation Rentals, Hotels & More Lodging Options

A 911 dispatcher in Stockton, California, has been commended on Nov. 28 for helping to calm a suicidal man during a six-hour standoff.

The California Highway Patrol (CHP) Stockton Communications Center received a call from the Jackson Rancheria RV Park along Dalton Road on Nov. 27.

Officials said the call came in around 3:00 p.m. from a man who was alone inside his camper trailer. While on the call, the man started making threats against himself and his neighbors, reported CBS13.

Dispatcher Kayla Riler spoke with the caller, who said “he was heavily armed and would kill himself and anyone who came to his door,” CHP said in a Facebook post.

As Riler talked with him, the Amador County Sheriff’s Department responded to the call and tried to make contact with the man who was reportedly a week-long guest at the RV park.

As Riler had already gained the man’s trust, he refused to speak with anyone else.

Meanwhile, officers evacuated about 30 people from the park, blocked off the area, and a SWAT team was called in.

With the support of other dispatchers and members of local crisis negotiation teams, Riler spoke with the distraught man for six hours.

“He had some health issues, he was claiming, and he had been drinking. He made some threats to load up his guns and start shooting, and so that’s what triggered our response. We’ve been up here ever since with pretty much everything we had and all the people we could muster,” Amador County Sheriff Martin Ryan told CBS13 of the standoff.

Finally just before 9 p.m., Riler convinced the man to exit his RV and surrender himself to the deputies waiting outside.

At one point, the deputies said they were forced to shoot rubber bullets when the man did not comply with commands. However, no one was injured.

“Very proud of our dispatcher!” wrote the CHP. “Special thanks to all of our law enforcement partners that worked flawlessly together during this successful incident!”

The man is now in police custody and is identified as 58-year-old Frank Russell Davenport from La Mesa, reported Fox40.

Police found a shotgun and two handguns in the man’s fifth wheel RV. All three guns were loaded. He was accused of making terrorist threats and resisting arrest.

“I chose this profession because I wanted to help people and save lives; tonight was a good night, I got to do both!” Riler said to the CHP after the incident.

Very proud of our dispatcher! On November 27, 2018, Public Safety Dispatcher (PSD) Kayla Riler, of the California…

تم النشر بواسطة ‏‎CHP – Stockton‎‏ في الأربعاء، ٢٨ نوفمبر ٢٠١٨

“Due to PSD Riler’s superior efforts and the teamwork of the dispatch center along with multiple Law Enforcement Agencies, this incident concluded favorably,” the CHP said.

“Unfortunately that is not always the case. If you, or someone you know, is in need of support or intervention please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255, to speak with a trained professional. If your situation is potentially life-threatening, call 9-1-1 or go to a hospital emergency room.”
