Mitchell County said it is looking for more citizens to volunteer at a number of their fire departments to help other citizens.
"We need as many firefighters as we can, and there's certain benefits to be a volunteer firefighter," said Mitchell County Board of Commissioners Administrator Clark Harrell.
Harrell said volunteer firefighters are needed because of the 22 volunteer fire departments located throughout the county.
"The purpose for having so many volunteer fire departments, the actual trucks located throughout the county, is because we want to include as many citizens as we can, within five miles of a fire truck," explained Harrell.
Mitchell County Fire and Rescue responds to emergencies outside of Pelham and Camilla.
