One of the things I found so frustrating when I lived out there is that you were pretty much expected to sit back and take it.

In situations like that though, I think the best option is to get rid of the lifelines and anything else that could be damaged so they have easy on/off access.
Of course, the -best- option would be to make the preservation groups responsible for damages, but that is extremely unlikely.
