Fire Emissions Joint Forum:
Basic Smoke Management Program Assessment/Clearinghouse (Task 2.4.2.1 / 2.3.1 / 2.3.3)

The Task Team will make recommendations for elements of BSMP's for both agricultural and wildlands which will address public nuisance, health and visibility concerns. EPA guidance will be used as a starting point. Any data collected during the existing smoke management program assessment will be compiled to create a clearinghouse of information available to states/tribes and interested parties.

Call for Volunteers: The currently active Basic Smoke Management Program (BSMP) Task Team also needs volunteers to help develop recommendations for wildland, agricultural, and tribal BSMPs. Surveys for wildland, agricultural, and tribal smp's are completed, and the draft recommendations for wildland BSMPs are nearly complete. Task Team members need to work on finishing the recommendations for the wildland BSMP and begin developing recommendations for agricultural and tribal BSMPs. Additional information still needs to be obtained on tribal SMP's. The Task Team will also be developing a web-accessible clearinghouse of smoke management program documents. The work needs to be completed soon, and will likely involve biweekly conference calls and writing assignments. Please contact Diane Riley at driley@deq.idaho.gov or by fax at (208) 373-0154.
