CHIPPER PROGRAM SUSPENDED
This morning the executive board of the El Dorado County Fire Safe Council made the difficult decision to suspend the chipping program. No new applications will be accepted. Applications that have a job number assigned will be completed. The program is currently funded by a grant from CAL FIRE and the grant dollars have been nearly depleted. The homeowner insurance crisis, El Dorado County Vegetation ordinance and the COVID-19 stay at home order have contributed to an unprecedented increase in demand for the program. Our all-volunteer staff are aggressively seeking additional funding sources from our collaborators and will reopen the program as soon as additional funding is secured.

Sunday's presentation by Alan Thompson, "Radio for the Rest of Us", really motivated those community members that were present. The Aukum Fairplay FireSafe Council will be hosting workshops so that we can develop a radio system of communication to use in emergencies. We will let you know when they will be scheduled.
