The Monterey County Office of Emergency Services is coordinating a resupply airlift into Big Sur on Friday, March 3rd.
A helicopter will ferry eight pallets of food, 1,000 gallons of diesel fuel, more than 400 pounds of pet food/supplies and mail for those in the isolated portions of Big Sur from a staging area at the Pfeiffer State Park ball field, which can be reached by taking the Pfeiffer State Park entrance off Highway 1. Airlift efforts will begin at 9:30 a.m. and will continue throughout the day, as it will require nearly a dozen trips to make the full delivery.
For safety reasons, the public will not be allowed near any of the landing zones during these operations.
Many thanks to the agencies, businesses, organizations and volunteers who are participating and helped facilitate this effort, which include Monterey County staff and District 5 Supervisor Mary Adams, the SPCA of Monterey County, the Crossroads Safeway, Post Ranch, State Parks, the Big Sur Fire Brigade, Nepenthe and numerous volunteers.
