Fire Lookout Program Offers Training For New Volunteers

The Angeles National Forest Fire Lookout Association (ANFFLA) is recruiting volunteers to staff the last remaining fire lookout on the Angeles National Forest for the 2017 season. Volunteers are also needed to staff the highly-visited Chilao Visitor Center. Lookout volunteers help to protect the forest and local mountain communities against the threat of fire, as well as interpret the natural and cultural history of the fire lookout program and surrounding area.

The ANFFLA is currently looking for volunteers to staff the Slide Mountain lookout, which is accessible via a 2-1/2 mile hike. Volunteers are also needed to perform lookout duties at Vetter Mountain Peak. Lookouts are responsible for scanning for signs of smoke or fire and keeping aware of current fire conditions, all while being surrounding by nature’s beauty. The ANFFLA also assists in staffing the Chilao Visitor Center and seeks volunteers for this effort. All volunteers will serve as historical interpreters for the fire lookout system. Volunteers are required to commit 8-1/2 hours per month between May and November.

New volunteers will be required to attend 12 hours of training sessions to include a program orientation, modules in interpretation and natural history, and operations training. Additional 8-hour field training sessions will also be provided for lookouts and visitor center volunteers. New volunteers will be required to attend one of the orientation sessions scheduled for Saturday, May 6 at 10 a.m. and Thursday, May 11 at 6:30 p.m. These sessions will be held at the Forest Service’s Headquarters Office in Arcadia, CA at 701 N. Santa Anita Avenue.

Additional information and training dates can be found at the Angeles National Forest Fire Lookout Association Web site at Please contact Pam Morey (909) 225-1025 or pammorey@ to RSVP.
