The Rancho Penasquitos Firesafe Council is calling for volunteers to man a strategically located station along the Penasquitos Canyon and keep an eye out for smoke and fire.

According to the Rancho Penasquitos Town Council website, volunteers will make a quick call to 911 when smoke is spotted, giving the San Diego Fire/Rescue Department the earliest possible notice — which will help in putting out the fire before it becomes out of control.
