Secure SAHC Website

Recently we have had a few inquiries concerning the security of the SAHC website.  Google is pushing all websites to be secure whether or not sensitive information is being transmitted.  So how does the SAHC website measure up.

The SAHC website uses a third party form building service, the membership form and membership renewal forms are SSL secured by this company.  All personal information transmitted in the forms are encrypted and secure.

The online credit card information transmitted for new members and renewing members is handled by PayPal which is SSL secured, all credit card information is encrypted and secured.

At this time the login for the members side of the website is not secure, plans are in the making to have the login secured in the near future.

Thank you,

SAHC Webmaster


Seasonal closure lifted on Carr Canyon Road

Seasonal closure lifted on Carr Canyon Road and campgrounds 

Road and sites reopened to public use
 
The Coronado National Forest, Sierra Vista Ranger District, has reopened upper Carr Canyon (Forest Road 386). Ramsey Vista and Reef Townsite campgrounds, located in Carr Canyon, have also been reopened.
 
The seasonal closure was put in place for public safety, which is a primary concern when closing roads for the winter season.  Hazardous conditions, including snow and ice on roadways, can lead to difficulty traveling and may result in accidents or vehicles becoming stranded. Seasonal closures may reduce such inconveniences and prevent serious accidents or injury.
 
For more information please contact the Sierra Vista Ranger District, located at 4070 S. Avenida Saracino in Hereford, Arizona.  The office can be reached by phone by calling (520) 378-0311.  Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
