Blue Lake Springs Homeowners Association (BLSHOA) is a proud sponsor of the CAL FIRE Volunteers in Prevention (VIP) Program

BLSHOA, in collaboration with CAL FIRE and Ebbetts Pass Fire District, has sponsored this fire prevention program to reduce the risk of wild fires in our community.

Volunteers are trained by CAL FIRE to make preliminary property inspections of developed properties for fire safety as required by Public Resources Code 4291, and to discuss with homeowners ways to make their homes fire safe.

The Blue Lake Springs VIP volunteers have extended this program to also include undeveloped properties, which must be cleared to meet the Ebbetts Pass Fire District requirements. Our volunteers annually inspect all properties in Blue Lake Springs. They spend many hours reviewing the properties according to the agency's requirements. Please review the information on the "Agency Requirement" link above.

Check the Lodge Log in April and May for the current year's inspection dates.

If you have questions about fire safety requirements or want to become a volunteer, select the CONTACT link in the top menu to send an email to Pete Padelford, the BLSHA VIP Coordinator.
