Prescribed Burns and Direct Notification Program
The Fort Ord prescribed burn season begins July 1, 2013; However, we will not consider mobilizing for a prescribed burn until we have all the proper conditions. One of the key conditions is the weather. We typically see these very specific weather conditions in the Fall (September/October).
Register with the Direct Notification Program to be notified when a prescribed burn is imminent, and when a prescribed burn is started. Direct notification will be provided by telephone, text, or e-mail for anyone who wants to receive such notification. Check this website or call the toll free number for periodic updates.
If you registered for the direct notification program in prior years, you must re-register for the program in 2013. Community members can register for this program or update existing contact information by calling the toll free number or by completing the Direct Notification Program registration form. Go to http://www.fortordcleanup.com/burnprogram
to register on line or to download the registration form or for additional details on the program. The Army will use your contact information only to provide prescribed burn update information.

How are we doing? We want to know...
Help us refine the community outreach program for Fort Ord by participating in the 2013 Fort Ord cleanup community survey.
We regularly update the Fort Ord Community Relations Plan which describes how community members can participate in decisions about the environmental cleanup of the former Fort Ord. We use recent input from community members through the Environmental Cleanup Survey and community interviews as supporting information in the process of producing updates to the outreach program. We are very interested in learning how you would like to participate in the environmental cleanup at Fort Ord. Additionally, the information we collect from the survey and community interviews will be used to help us determine the level of community interest in this site and fit the public participation program to the community's information needs.
The Environmental Cleanup Survey can help the Army to identify your interest in the cleanup. By completing and returning the Survey, you can help yourself, your community, and the Army to develop better communication and understanding. There are three ways you can complete the survey.How to Complete the Online Survey:
- As an online form
- Download, print and mail the PDF version
We also invite you to participate in an interview about your interests and concerns surrounding the cleanup. We encourage you to share this survey with neighbors and friends.
We hope you will take the time to participate in this important effort by completing the survey or scheduling an interview. Please contact Melissa Broadston at (831) 393-1284, or e-mail at:
