Mt. Zion Lookout Staffed For 2020 Fire Season

Mt. Zion Lookout Staffed For 2020 Fire Season

The CAL FIRE Amador-El Dorado Unit is pleased to announce that the Mt. Zion lookout tower in Pine Grove is officially staffed for the 2020 fire season. CAL FIRE is utilizing volunteers from the surrounding community to staff the tower as part of CAL FIRE’s volunteers in prevention (VIP) program. These volunteers are required to go through a vetting process and then complete training on the skills required to use all the tools and equipment required of a lookout. Some of the skills include: how to use emergency communications equipment, the effective use of a “fire finder”, and a basic understanding of reading smoke. The volunteer roster is currently full, but CAL FIRE is creating a waiting list of those individuals who may be interested in becoming a volunteer.
