Volunteers sought to staff fire lookout towers in the Angeles National Forest

Volunteers are needed to staff fire lookout stations in the Angeles National Forest this summer, officials said.

The Angeles National Forest Fire Lookout Association is recruiting volunteers to man the Slide Mountain Lookout as well as Vetter Mountain Peak, “to protect the forest and local mountain communities from the threat of fire,” ANFFLA officials said in a written statement.

“Volunteer will be expected not only to gaze lovingly at their beautiful surroundings to look for signs of smoke or fire, but also be aware of current fire conditions, as well as offer services as a historical interpreter for the fire lookout system,” the statement said.

Participants are required to volunteer eight hours per month between May and November. The fire lookout officially begins Memorial Day weekend.
