The Trails team.

The Stallion Springs Community really came together for the first Trails Maintenance day we've had in a few years. It was a great turnout and a beautiful day and we were able to clear so much terrain in a short amount if time.  General Manager Vanessa Stevens said, "Our trails in this community are an asset that we do not want to lose and it made me so proud to see everyone working together. Thank you to all that attended. The team was amazing and we are looking forward to our next trails meetup. If you missed the fun and are interested in helping out and keeping informed, please contact Shawnee to get on the list at


David Cox has been appointed the new Stallion Springs CERT Leader. Welcome Dave in his new role and responsibilities.

Outgoing CERT leader, Dominique Dieken said, "It is with heavy heart that my wife, Korinna, and I are leaving Tehachapi and moving to southwestern Utah. The time has therefore come for me to step down as SSCERT Lead Chair and board member. The Board of Directors met and appointed my successor, Dave Cox. Dave has shown his unconditional commitment to SSCERT, the community of Stallion Springs and beyond and I support his appointment wholeheartedly. Change is inevitable and those who move on are opening opportunities for others to step up, bring their ideas to the table, and take on new responsibilities. I encourage each of you to participate and step up to the plate. Unlike a job where individuals are motivated by a paycheck, an all-volunteer organization's success is solely ensured by each and every member's conviction that they are making a difference. Started locally, making a difference can ultimately make the world a better place.  SSCERT's strength and successes did not come from any one individual, but from each of us contributing our skills and commitments for the greater good. This is how SSCERT grew from humble beginnings in 2003 to one of Kern County's premier CERTs. I am proud to have been a part of this and have full confidence in Dave's ability to lead this great team into the future. I would like to thank all of our members past and present for their loyalty, our past leadership for their guidance, as well as the Stallion Springs Police Department and the Stallion Springs Community Service District for their unwavering support over nearly two decades."
