If you would like to join the team of Volunteers, join us
on Thursday night. We train mostly at Station 1 (2380 Hwy 158). Stop by and sit in on a training, meet the members and see if it is a "good fit" for you.
Volunteer firefighting is a very rewarding and valuable way to serve our community. It takes dedication and many hours of training to become a firefighter. If you're willing to put in the time and effort, we would like to welcome you.
Stop by Station 1 on a Thursday night at 7:00 pm or contact the June Lake Fire Protection District for more information at: (760) 648-7390.
