Volunteers keeping a watchful eye on brush fires

June 20, 2011 News 13 Report.  

Why should you volunteer?
You can be a vital link in helping to prevent a similar situation like the Wildfires of 1998.  All lease member volunteers are given year round access the lease for BOLO (Be on the Lookout) fire watch.  This also gives members an opportunity to check on feeders and to monitor the area for trespassers.

Check out the Volunteer Orientation  document for an idea of what volunteers do.


How do you volunteer?
Contact Mike Hayes at (386)424-1915 or (386)547-1916  or to sign up. Shifts at the tower are from 11:00 to 5:00 PM seven days a week from May through August.


Reminder: If you sign up to volunteer and receive your BOLO sticker you must serve your time in the tower.  If for some reason you are unable to do so, you must get someone else to take your place.  Failure to do so will result in a call from Mike Thomas letting you know that your invitation to be a member of the lease may not be renewed.
