Park District Police Press Release: Rocky Ridge Tower Collapses


On July 29, 2013, approximately 9:00 a.m., East Bay Regional Park District Police were notified that the radio communications tower located on Rocky Ridge had failed and collapsed.  Rocky Ridge is located west of San Ramon and Danville.  Officers responded to the scene and found that the tower had collapsed during the night.  No one was injured in the incident.

The tower supports radio communications systems throughout the East Bay.  However, these systems are built with redundancy, so all of the systems remained operational.  The cause of the collapse is under investigation.  However, it is believed that some form of vandalism may have been involved.  The actual value of the damage is still being determined.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the East Bay Regional Park District Police Department at (510) 881-1833.
