SAN BERNARDINO – The Fire Lookout Host Program, which is one of the six volunteer programs of the Southern California Mountains Foundation, is recruiting volunteers to staff fire lookouts for the 2014 fire season.

Lookout volunteers help to protect the forest and local mountain communities as well as the communities along and outside of the forest boundary from the threat of fire. Lookout volunteers also act as hosts to many visitors to the lookouts.

New volunteer trainings begin April 5. To be a fire lookout host, volunteers must attend four training classes.

* Orientation – a two hour introduction to the program.

* Interpretation/Natural History – a three hour class.

* Operations – an all day, seven hour class.

* In-Tower Training – an eight hour, hands on training that takes place in the lookout with an experienced host.

Dates and additional information are posted on the Southern California Mountains Foundation website,, or contact Pam Morey at (909) 225-1025 or
