Livestock Pass Program

Santa Clara County has created a “Livestock Pass” program to provide a uniform way of identifying commercial livestock producer 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 a ranchers with 20 head, or more, of livestock limited emergency access to restricted areas for the purposes of:

1) Feeding, watering, or caring for livestock sheltering in-place or

2) Evacuating livestock

A four-hour fire safety training is required to participate in the Livestock Pass Program. This training class has been approved to meet the Livestock Pass program requirements and will be provided by Santa Clara Unit of CAL FIRE.
