This tower is close enough to the community of Weaverville, which has been almost burned off the map due to wildfire several times within the last two decades. Many visitors access the Trinity Alps Wilderness from the Weaver Bally Lookout Road, which requires a sturdy vehicle with at least 6" of clearance. This tower has the potential to deliver Fire Prevention messages to many, many people, both locals and visitors alike.
