Awaiting Acknowledgement


From: Autumn Oaks

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act, I hereby request the following records:

Information regarding 2021 fires, specifically Caldore, Tamarack, and Dixie.

1. Original incident reports.
2. Procedures/policies for fighting wildfires.
3. Collection of data on three fires listed above.

I ask that your office consider waiving any fees associated with this request, as it is being made as part of a student project being conducted in the public interest and as part of a class within the University of Nevada, Reno Reynold’s School of Journalism.

Should any payment be necessary in order to fulfill this request, please provide a detailed estimate of those associated costs in advance of its work to process this request.

If you choose to deny this request, please supply a written explanation for the denial, including a reference to the specific statutory exemption(s) upon which you rely for each redaction and document that will not be disclosed. Please release all segregable portions of otherwise exempt material.

If access to the records I am requesting will take longer than the statutorily-described amount of time for processing records requests, please contact me with information about when I might expect copies or the ability to inspect the requested records.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 calendar days, as the statute requires.
