The Alameda County Livestock Pass Program
The Alameda County Livestock Pass Program provides a uniform way of identifying commercial livestock producers, owner-operators and managers to firefighting personnel, law enforcement officers, and other emergency personnel. Possession of a Livestock Pass during a wildfire or a similar disaster may allow the rancher limited emergency access to restricted areas for the purposes of:
- Feeding, watering, or caring for livestock sheltering in place
- Evacuating livestock
A four-hour fire safety training is required to participate in the Livestock Pass Program. This training class will be provided by CAL FIRE. This training must be completed prior to receiving your Livestock Pass. If you have already attended the CAL FIRE training in another County, this requirement is met. Provide proof of training attendance along with the required Livestock Pass.
