Burn Permits Required May 1st in The TCU

San Andreas – Wednesday, May 1st , 2019, at 8:00 AM the Tuolumne-Calaveras Unit of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) will require burning permits within State Responsibility Areas of Tuolumne County, Calaveras County, Eastern Stanislaus County and Eastern San Joaquin County. Burn hours will not be restricted; however, a transition to night time burning may occur as conditions change. The Tuolumne-Calaveras Unit is continuing to implement elevation based burning requirements. New burn permits will reflect Zone 1 (Below 3,500’) and Zone 2 (Above 3,500’). Previously issued burn permits are still valid, please verify your elevation and zone prior to burning. The burn information lines for Tuolumne and Calaveras Counties will state if it is a permissive burn day in Zone 1 and/or Zone 2. The goal of this program is to allow property owners at the higher elevations to utilize door yard burning to remove waste generated while creating and maintaining defensible space for a longer period of time, while minimizing the potential of escaped control debris burns at the lower elevations.




Permits will be available only during business hours Monday through Friday, at the following
locations:
• CAL FIRE Headquarters, 785 Mountain Ranch Road, San Andreas (closed from noon
to 1 p.m.)
• Altaville FFS, 125 N Main St, Angels Camp
• Arnold FFS, 2517 Hwy. 4, Arnold
• Blanchard FFS, 2990 Highway 132, La Grange
• Copperopolis FFS, 433 Main Street, Copperopolis
• Ebbetts Pass FPD, 1037 Blagen Road, Arnold
• Ebbetts Pass FPD Station 3, 40 Canyon View Drive, Hathaway Pines
• Esperanza FFS, 9740 Mountain Ranch Road, Mountain Ranch
• Green Springs FFS, 11600 La Grange Road, Jamestown
• Groveland FFS, 11700 Merrell Rd, Groveland
• Groveland CSD, 18930 Highway 120, Groveland
• Jamestown Station 76, 18249 4th Avenue, Jamestown
• Mono Village Station 51, 19500 Hillsdale Drive, Mono Village, Sonora
• Murphys FFS, 33 Apple Blossom Drive, Murphys
• Standard FFS, 18464 Striker Court, Sonora
• Stanislaus Consolidated Station # 24, 321 E Street, Waterford
• Stanislaus Consolidated Station # 28, 325 East G Street, Oakdale
California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection
• Stanislaus Consolidated Station # 29, 1700 Main Street, Knights Ferry
• Stanislaus Consolidated Station # 30, 13200 Valley Home Road, Oakdale
• Twain Harte FFS, 22978 Meadow Drive, Twain Harte
• USFS Calaveras Ranger Station, 5519 CA-4, Murphys, CA 95247
• West Point FFS, 22670 Highway 26, West Point
• Valley Springs FFS, 1855 New Hogan Parkway, Valley Springs

Please remember personnel may be away from the station for extended periods of time when they are responding to emergencies. Burn permit terms include limiting pile size to a maximum of four feet by four feet (four feet in
diameter, and four feet high) and clearing down to bare mineral soil 10 feet from the outer edges of burn piles. Outdoor burning may be done ONLY on permissive burn days. Remember
burn day status is determined based on air quality: how quickly smoke will disperse. Therefore, many permissible burn days are very windy. Never burn when it’s windy, even if it is a
permissible burn day. Remain in attendance of your burn project and have tools and water close by in order to suppress any escape from your burning operation.

Wildfire is coming. Are you ready? Unit Chief Josh White reminds everyone, “Getting your property ready for the coming fire season by creating and maintaining 100 feet of defensible
space around all structures is an excellent way to protect not only your home, but your neighborhood and community as well.”

It is your responsibility to check burn day status by calling your local Air Pollution Control District
with jurisdiction over your area.
Calaveras County: (209) 754-6600
Tuolumne County: (209) 533-5598
San Joaquin and Stanislaus Counties: (877) 429-2876

Criminal TCU Chief Josh White finally appears

Act. Specifically, the trial court found that Cal
**753 Fire investigator Joshua White engaged in
spoliation when he destroyed his field notes; he
also created a false "Origin and Cause Investigation
Report" (the Moonlight report), the false narrative
of which was injected in the litigation in July 2010
when Cal Fire provided the Moonlight reportin
lieu of factual statements-in its response to
interrogatories; and White continued the same false
narrative by testifying untruthfully at his deposition
III ovember 2010. Thus, the trial court concluded

          I can’t believe they still allow ANY burning after April. I’ve already seen (on the Pinetree) where burns have been left unattended and required fire department intervention. Risk to reward just not there!!!

      It didn't start in Calaveras so he didn't have the investigation. There were however equipment damages that were never investigated in Calaveras County. West Point should have had thejr engine replaced after ot was destroyed. Only my opinion.
