A message from the US Forest Service AND CAL FIRE:
The new meeting location for the upcoming EDSO/ACL/USFS/CAL FIRE Timber contractor meeting is
Mother Lode Lions Hall, 4701 Missouri Flat Rd., Diamond Springs, CA 95619 (Corner of Missouri Flat Rd. & Pleasant Valley Rd.)
A preseason meeting across the CALFire AEU, Eldorado NF, Stanislaus NF, and CALFire TCU to meet ALL timber contractors and help them sign up into the HEMS (CALFIRE) and/or VIPR (USFS) systems in advance of any upcoming need. At that session, we will also walk the timber operators through the requirements necessary in the event we ask their help under Emergency Use so they will be prepared to meet minimum standards.
