The Claremont Hills Wilderness Park will be closed this Sunday, May 13, through Wednesday, May 16 as the Claremont Police Department, Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), and the Claremont Park Rangers  participate in a joint brush fire response training exercise with the Los Angeles County Fire Department. 

Participants in the 3-day training program will practice cutting fire lines in the hillside, placing hoses and putting water on simulated fires. Air units from the Los Angeles County Fire Department will also take part in the exercises. 

The Wilderness Park will close Sunday, May 13 at dusk and will reopen to pedestrians on Wednesday, May 16 at 3 p.m. For more information, contact Lisa Marrujo at 399-5490 or bpallotto@ci.claremont.ca.us.
