Caldor Fire Damage Agricultural Assessment Forms

Your Damage Estimates Needed for Federal Assistance

A new form has been created by the El Dorado Department of Agriculture Weights and Measures to be a preliminary data capture of the potential damage and/or loss during the August-October 2021 Caldor Fire.
