Solano County Ag Department currently accepting applications for the 2024 Ag Pass program
January 2, 2024
SOLANO COUNTY – The Solano County Department of Agriculture is currently accepting applications for 2024 Ag Pass program training classes. The program trains and preemptively issues passes to commercial farmers, ranchers, ag processors and horse stable operators so they may enter evacuation areas to care for crops and livestock during emergency events.
Commercial agricultural business owners and managerial employees interested in obtaining Ag Passes must apply with the Agriculture Department. Eligible participants will be required to attend an Incident Safety for Agricultural and Livestock Producers training. Although possession of an Ag Pass preapproves farmers and ranchers to enter evacuation areas during emergencies, there may be times when conditions will not allow for safe access. Emergency responders retain the right to enforce road closures and prevent access into restricted areas to protect imminent threats to life and property.
TRAININGS BEING OFFERED SOON
The Agriculture Department, County Office of Emergency Services and CalFIRE will be holding trainings on January 23 and February 27 at the County Event Center in Fairfield. These will be the only trainings offered this year. Ag Passes will not be issued again until 2025.
