50/50 CHANCE ANIMAL ACRES NEEDS TO RE-EVACUATE ANIMALS

8/31/09 — AUTHORIZED BY FRANK ALLEN, ANIMAL ACRES
Susie V Kaufman, Animal Acres Evacuation Coordinator, susie [at] jarrettlennon.com

Evacuation Site #2 is now potentially in the path of the Station Fire, which is heading due north towards Palmdale (where all the animals, except sheep and goats, are). The sheep and goats are still at Animal Acres.

As of 2:07PM, Monday, 31 August 2009, Frank Allen has asked everyone to be on alert for a second evacuation. He has also asked that NO ONE CALL HIM. Instead, he wants everyone to be on strong standby, and await a phone call and/or email to deploy.

ADDRESS FOR EVACUATION SITE #2 IS:
10955 Hillview Lane
Littlerock, California 93543

DIRECTIONS TO EVACUATION SITE #2 FROM LOS ANGELES AREA:
– 5 or 405 or 210 to…
– Highway 14 toward Palmdale
– Exit 30 (Pearblossom Hwy) – 0.7 miles
– Merge onto Sierra Hwy – 0.8 miles
– Continue on Pearblossom Hwy – 4.5 miles
– Slight right at 138/Pearblossom Hwy – 5.8 miles
– Turn right at 106th St E – 2.1 miles
– Turn left at Butterfield Stage Rd – 0.2 miles
– Slight left at Hillview Lane – 0.2 miles
– Turn left – evacuation site on right – 213 feet

All exits on the 14 have been closed since yesterday. HOWEVER, Animal Acres evacuation helpers now have official permission to cross the blockade. When you reach the exit, approach one of the CHP blockade officers, identify yourself, and explain that you’re there to help with the re-evacuation.
