San Jacinto News- Times
OAKHURST – For years the Oakhurst Volunteer Fire Department has helped the community it serves and now it is in need of being rescued. “I know when we completely close down it will cause insurance rates to go up for our community,” said Rose Hopkins, secretary/ treasurer of Oakhurst VFD. “We meet on the fi rst and third Thursday of every month and at this time we are in need of volunteers. We are not under contract with the county but we could be again if we show we are a viable and useful part of the community,” Hopkins said. “We need members in order to show the San Jacinto County Emergency Services District that we are able to handle what needs to be handled as a viable department,” she said. “Please come and join us and help save the Oakhurst Volunteer Fire Department,” Hopkins added.
