CUPA 2020 - Bill Jones Lifetime Achievement Award

On October 28, 2014, CUPA Forum Board members Bill Jones (Los Angeles County Fire Department) and Mike Vizzier (San Diego Environmental Health) received an Environmental Excellence Award from the Industrial Environmental Association of San Diego on behalf of the CUPA Forum Board (CFB). The CFB is a statewide group that represents all 83 CUPAs and 27 Participating Agencies. This award was for the efforts and leadership in rewriting an entire portion of the California Health and Safety Code dealing with business plans and inventory requirements.

In the awards luncheon, a short video was shown that highlighted the efforts of the CFB and all the stakeholders involved in the legislative process. The CFB thanks all who were involved in this effort, including the many staff in our collective agencies, our business stakeholders, our CAEHA and Cal-Chief's partners and CCEEB for their tireless commitment and dedication to rewrite Chapter 6.95.
