San Manuel Fire Responds to Simulated Plane Crash at SB International Airport


Firefighters from the San Manuel Fire Department were among 300 first responders who took part in an emergency drill in which 60 passengers and four crew members were victims of a simulated crash landing of an Airbus A320 at San Bernardino International Airport on February 28.

This is the third year that San Manuel Fire has participated in this Multi-Agency, Multi-Casualty Incident Drill. San Manuel joined more than 20 other area agencies including San Bernardino County Fire and Cal Fire.

Training exercises such as these are designed for emergency responders to train in stressful situations.

"Our crews have mastery of the daily, high-risk, low-frequency events," said

Michael J. Smith, San Manuel's fire chief. "What's so important here is they're using the skills they don't get to use every day."

To help with keeping in real-life casualty scenarios, injured passengers and crew members were played by EMT and paramedic students from Crafton Hills and Victor Valley colleges. They had makeup applied to create realistic looking injuries and participants acted out the injuries that would be expected in plane crash scenario.

San Manuel Fire, along with each participating agency, will evaluate their performance in this training so they can continue to improve under different scenarios.



Baseball Season is in Full Swing

The sound of bats cracking and people cheering at Civitan Little League can only mean one thing - baseball season is in full swing.

Since 1966, Civitan has been the local ball field where our neighborhood comes together to play and root for the home team. This season the cheering will be louder than ever before as Civitan welcomes back girls' softball for the first time since 1999.

On March 31, Opening Ceremonies will be held to introduce the following teams for the 2018 season: 


T-Ball: Angels, Dodgers, White Sox, Yankees

Farm: Cubs, Dodgers, Giants, Mets

Minor: Dodgers, Marlins, Reds

Major: Dodgers, Padres

Senior: Angels


Minor: Sweethearts

Major: Fury, Xtreme

Senior: Screamin' Eagles


For generations, Civitan Little League has taught our kids sportsmanship, leadership and personal responsibility. Win or lose, Civitan has built mentors, friendships, and family memories that last a lifetime.

In the Civitan family there is always room for more, so come out to cheer on our home team. Regular season goes until the closing ceremonies on June 2, 2018. From there, qualifying teams will move on to the Tournament of Champions, All-Stars and fingers-crossed, Western Regionals!

If you are interested in getting more involved, volunteers are always needed to run the snack bar or maintain the grounds. Students from Aquinas High School frequently earn community service hours by volunteering their time to keep the field clean.

If you're looking to volunteer, Civitan can use you!
