MERIDIAN, Miss. (AP) - Lauderdale County fire coordinator Allan Dover says they need more people to help fight fires.

WTOK-TV (https://bit.ly/22BcVY6 ) reports the county is looking to sign up volunteers. And while some might think they know what that involves, Dover says there’s more than one way to help fight fires.

He says volunteers are needed to help extinguish blazes, but they also need driver operators and people to do fundraising. The only requirement is that you be at least 18 years old.

Lauderdale County averages about 2,500 calls a year, which is tough for volunteers with day-jobs.

Dover says the best part about volunteering is simply being able to help the community. He says that’s the reason he’s been doing it for more than 30 years.

Anyone interested can contact Dover at 601-482-9856.
