Jerry has been a dedicated volunteer for many years and is active during all Fire Watch deployments. He often works multiple shifts at different parks throughout the deployment day to ensure coverage. Jerry is one of the many fire watch volunteers certified as amateur radio operator or “HAM”, which enables him to share real time weather conditions via radio with other volunteers around the county. The information is also passed on to local fire agencies to give them a real time weather conditions update. Jerry is a regular at outreach events where he educates park visitors on wildfire prevention and awareness. A credit to his amazing and caring personality, there is rarely a visitor who walks away from the fire watch booth without smile after talking to Jerry.
