CLEAR LAKE — The Clear Lake Fire Department is looking for more volunteers. Clear Lake mayor Nelson Crabb says it’s a department that citizens take pride in and the department is looking to add to its membership.
“They do a wonderful job, they take great pride in the department. We as a city try to provide the necessary equipment for them, within budget of course. I think we’ve done a good job, and they’ve done a good job. If there’s anyone interested in becoming a volunteer firefighter, now is the time to get your application in.”
Volunteers must be at least 18 years old, live within two-and-a-half miles of the fire station, must have a driver’s license and pass a background check.
The department on Tuesday June 26th starting at 6 o’clock will be holding an informational program for potential volunteer firefighters at the fire station at 711 2nd Avenue North. It will include a tour and a few hands-on activities.
