Girlfriend today had a closing on a piece of property in the forest, so her and the buy had to go to the Sheriffs office and the forest service office today to get permit to go out to this house.Post by a friend on another forum:
I'm going to visit someone on their private property tomorrow (to help with some fire mitigation). I have to drive on a FS [Forest Service] road to get there. I am having to get written permission from FS Office, carry a fire extinguisher, shovel, and 5 gallons of water in my vehicle as well. Just to drive down a gravel road to get to someone's home. This is serious. They wouldn't go to these measures if it weren't absolutely necessary. There are substantial fines and jail time waiting for those who break the fire restrictions- right now (because of Stage 3 closure) if you are caught on National Forrest land (even just driving down a FS road) without permission and applicable precautions, you have a MANDATORY appearance in FEDERAL court.
