Ogden Ranger District Safety sign now

TO: US FOREST SERVICE, OGDEN RANGER DISTRICT

We the signers of this petition have found and collectively agree that:

-We Are grateful for the role the forest service plays in this nation, and in northern Utah.

-The maps provided by the Ogden RD (Ranger District) especially ATV maps such as the one found at:

http://fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprdb5090532.pdf

are vague, and dangerous.

-Roads, trails, and pathways in Wasatch-Uintah-Cache national forests are not marked properly for public safety, and should be.
These roads have no information available to identify the
location to 1. public service personnel 3.
emergency service personel 3. fire fighting personnel
4. search and rescue personnel

-The risk to all outdoor enthusiasts is higher than is needed and easily reduced

-Forest habitat is being destroyed by a lack of knowledge on the part of the public as to what roads are available, and what roads are closed, and we feel this lack of knowledge is due to the lack of signs and information on the land.


Furthermore, we petition the Ogden Ranger District to do the following items for the good of all people, particularly residents of northern Utah, who breath the air when wildfires make it bad, or who enjoy the pretty scenery, those who rely on the need to navigate the national forests especially should they ever get lost in them, those who may ever need emergency medical aid, or those who may become stranded in the national forests:

1.list streams, peaks, and other points of reference on all new maps created after this petition is delivered.
2.Place signs at the access (beginning or end) to all public accessible roads, trails, and pathways which label them the same as they are on the maps (ex: trail 620221 is on the map, so the beginning of the road will have a sign stating "Trail: 620221")
3.Place signs at entrances of national forest land stating where maps and info are available to the public ("For your safety please obtain visitor maps and info at X location")
4.Provide GPS coordinates of major landmarks and points of reference as well as the ends of all public trails, roads, and pathways on new maps created after petition is delivered.
5.Erect and maintain signs either at beginnings of all closed roads to notify of closures, or erect and maintain signs at entrances to national forest land stating that no signs will be available and maps should be used to determine status of roads.


-We feel these changes are vital, and neccessary for the good of the land, and the health, safety, and well being of every human who could be potentially affected by a tragedy in our great national forests.

Thank you to all who take part in this petition and to all who we are asking to implement these changes as it is beneficial to every single Utahn, as well as many who visit, or have family friends or loved ones residing, or visiting here.
