King County Fire District 28 has launched a "community helper" program, which seeks volunteers to assist the department with non-emergency functions.

Those with a background in administrative support duties are invited to join the program. Volunteers could be called upon to answer phones, greet customers, perform filing duties or set up for public meetings. Volunteers also are needed to take notes at public meetings.

Hours are flexible and will be between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays. Participants can volunteer a few hours per week or just a few hours per month.

Anyone wishing to learn more about the volunteer program can call Fire Chief Joe Clow at 360-825-5544 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
