Weekly fire drill planned at Girl Scout Camp

   CARNATION--Girl Scouts are well known for always "being prepared" and fire drill practice at summer camp is a necessary safety step for staying prepared. When Camp River Ranch in Carnation is in session from June 27-August 22, local residents may hear a fire siren between 1-3 p.m. every Monday. This emergency procedure prepares girls in case of a fire or other emergency during camp session. The signal is a constant tone running from one to three minutes, different from the local flood signal that has an alternating high-low tone.
