Let's All Work Together To Ensure Safety Of Competitive Events On Public Lands
In light of the off-road tragedy in Johnson Valley on August 14, 2010, Mojave Desert ORBA (Off-Road Business Association) hosted a meeting on last September between Southern California race promoters, their race rescue organizations, and officials from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Temecula, California, to open up communication between the various race promoters and the medical organizations that service those events.
"Racing in the desert puts a considerable amount of money into the Southern California economy and our industry. Ensuring it continues safely is in the best interest of everyone involved," Fred Wiley President/CEO of ORBA.
During the meeting, BLM emphasized their continuing efforts in reviewing established procedures and guidelines relative to Special Recreation Permits. Although a majority of the discussion focused on current event stipulations, changes that the race/rescue organizations might suggest to the BLM were also discussed. Off road permitted racing has had a positive safety record over the years however with the recent incident in Johnson Valley, BLM representatives stated that working closely on all future events with the off road community will go a long way to ensure that safe racing events continue.
"The only way for us to retain the use of these lands if to help associations like ORBA by speaking out and lending a helping hand."
