The average Arson Watch volunteer patrols on Red Flag days and has a minimum requirement of only 30 hours per year. A typical year will have up to a dozen Red Flag days. Patrols are on designated routes and take anywhere from 2-4 hours. If you enjoy driving our beautiful mountain roads and have some time to support your community, please contact us with your first and last name, phone number, email address, home address, and best time to contact you.

If you are unsure about volunteering, watch this frightening LA Times video, Fires in the Wind. It documents the 1993 Old Topanga fire which was eerily similar to the 2018 Woolsey fire.

Don't wait for the next major wildfire to motivate you to join. Do so now and perhaps help prevent the next major wildfire.
