Thanks for 69 Bravo Helipad

 

Dear Editor,

Thanks to the Topanga resident who provided the heliport for wildfire control as reported in the Messenger. I'm curious if the system works without electricity as happens in a disaster. Topanga has its own pumping stations going up to the water tanks in each neighborhood which operate on electricity but also have sufficient generator back up if the electricity is gone. I hope this is true.
