8B Wednesday, Jan. 4, 2012 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Demographic trends in your fire department i INSIDE THE FIREHOUSE TOM FORSTER Assistant Fire Chief Plum,s Eureka Fire Department There are fewer volunteer firefighters serving today, and more are older, according to national, state and local sources. The number of vol- unteer firefighters in the United States has declined more than 8 percent during the past 15 years, according to a recent study by the nonprof- it National Fire Protection Association. In addition, there is an ag- ing trend with volunteer firefighters, with more serv- ing who are over 50 years old, often into their 70s. Na- tionally, more than 25 per- cent of volunteer firefight- ers are over 50 years old. This makes sense due to the aging of society and the fact that people are living longer, but physical issues from aging may limit perfor- mance in emergencies. Of- ten there is no choice, as the number of younger people who can volunteer in rural communities has often de- clined. Evidence within Plumas County fire depart- ments shows similar trends, A recent study shows there are fewer volunteer firefighters nationally, and the number of those who are over 50 years old has increased. Photo by Tom Forster according to local fire chiefs. As of 2010, there were roughly 1.1 million firefight- ere in the United States, serv- ing in about 30,000 fire depart- ments. About 86 percent of those departments are mostly or fully volunteer, protecting 35 percent of the population in the United States. Larger communities and cities usual- ly have fire departments staffed with fully career fire- fighters, protecting the largest populations. A recent survey of local government Plumas County fire services helped describe 19 of the 20 fire departments serving our communities.

Kathy Williams, County Clerk By: Tina Awbrsy, Deputy Published FRB, IVR, PR, CP Jan. 4, 11, 18, 25, 2012 application. One depart- ment declined to participate in the grant. The survey did not include firefighter ages, nor could it show how the total number of firefighters has changed over the years given the lack of any historical records. The Plumas County Fire Chiefs Association (PCFCA) plans to collect similar data in the fu- ture, to help understand ongo- ing challenges and related trends. This will include the numbers and ages of firefight- ers, without names to protect privacy. We have approximately 325 firefighters serving in Plumas County, with the vast majority being volunteers. .. . There are 37 full-time person- nel, with 76 percent of those biqg firefighters in the Peninsula or Chester fire de- partments, where local tax- payers have chosen to fund a higher level of serv ice. Anec- dotal evidence from local fire chiefs indicates increasing concern about a decline in the total number of volunteer firefighters. Nationally and locally, many factors contribute to this problem. It takes more time than ever to be proper- ly trained as a firefighter, and it costs more to both equip and maintain the ros- ters. The weak economy has also had an impact, with fewer people being able to volunteer the time given the challenges of making a living. The PCFCA has a strategic plan that is updated annual- ly. 2012 goals include a focus on local volunteer firefighter recruiting and retention. The California State Firefighters Association will be helping through providing a two-day weekend workshop in May. This workshop will be of- fered to local fire depart .......... ments at no cost, through a federal grant. "We want to work on this problem togeth- er for our county," said PCF- CA president Ed Ward, Graeagle's fire chief. "All de- partments are invited to this workshop and will receive resources for recruiting and retention." POEM OF THE WEEK American Life in Poetry Ted Kooser U.S. Poet Laureate, 2004- 06 Anne Coray is an Alaskan, and in this beautbrul meditation on the stillness of nature she shows us how closely she's studied something that others might simply step over. The Art of Being The fern in the rain breathes the silver message. Stay, lie 10w. Play your dark reeds and relearn the beauty of absorption. There is nothing beyond the rotten log covered with leaves and needles. Forget the light emerging with its golden wick. Raise your face to the water-laden frond. A thousand blossoms will fall into your arms. --Anne Coray Poem copyright 2011 by Anne Coray American Life in Poetry is made possible by The Poetry Foundation, publisher of Poetry magazine. ,t
