Once you save you will be prompted to agree to the hold harmless agreement.It is your responsibility to ensure that you are up to date on all applicable FAPH regulations.These are available on the iSportsman website. If you are assisting someone with setting up the account ensure that they read and understand before clicking agree.
Next the account must be approved through the Visitor Control Center (VCC).This is most easily accomplished by completing APH Form 21 (Access request) available on the iSportsman home page. The completed form may be submitted via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org The woodcutter will be notified by the VCC upon approval.
It is at this point that the VCC will perform the background check unless the user already has unescorted access.
Unlike other iSportsman permits, the Firewood Permit cannot be purchased through iSportsman. Woodcutters will need to come into the Forestry Branch Office, during normal business hours, to purchase the permit. It is strongly recommended that woodcutters call, before coming to the Forestry Branch Office, to ensure that someone will be available to help you. The office number again is (804) 633-8409
