South County Fire Watch Needs Volunteers

With the severe drought, this year’s fire season is expected to be a difficult one.  You can help out by volunteering for the South County Fire Watch, organized and operated by the Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) and the South County Land Stewards.

South County Fire Watch Flyer

Several Village homeowners participate in this program but more volunteers are needed (adults only, sorry kids!).

Here’s how it works:

  • On Red Flag days, South County Land Stewards assign rotating shifts of volunteers to wildlife vantage points to serve as deterrents and lookouts for fire professionals.
  • Participants are placed in locations easily accessible from where they live or work. For example, Village residents are often assigned to Starr Ranch’s entrance or the picnic area on Bell Canyon Trail.
  • If you cannot take a shift on a particular Red Flag day, that’s ok.  The South County Land Stewards will work through the list to find someone who is available.

Training will be held one evening in July and August by the OCFA. If you’re interested in volunteering, contact Sandy DeSimone at Starr Ranch at 949-858-0309 or at sdesimone@audubon.org or Laura Coley Eisenberg at 949-240-3363 ext. 297 or lcoleyeisenberg@rmvreserve.org.
