When leaders in Washington state asked for volunteers to help fight wildfires, they weren’t expecting this.
“We appreciate your enthusiasm to serve, (and) have been overwhelmed by the strong response,” the Department of Natural Resources posted on its website.
At least 200 of the volunteers are equipment operators, many with their own backhoes and bulldozers able to cut fire lines.
DNR leaders are going through the list to see what qualifications the volunteers have.
The call for volunteers is still out, but only people with wildfire training and proper physical conditioning should sign up.
