The Fire Sirens of South Lake County are 34 years young this April. The sole purpose of this organization of dedicated volunteers  is to raise money for life saving equipment for the South Lake County Fire Dept. And they have lots of fun doing this!

Funds have been raised in many ways over the years, including rummage sales and holiday boutiques. For the past eight years money has been  raised through  sales of repurposed merchandise at our 2000 sq. foot thrift store. Last year we raised over $20,000.00 for the fire dept.

The south lake community is very generous in donations of all sorts of merchandise at our store. We encourage any member of the community to become a member of the fire sirens. It is a dynamic group of people who give their time and energy back to the community. Come meet a fire siren at the thrift store or at the monthly meeting at the fire station in Middletown. Meetings are the first Monday of every month at the Fire Station at 9:30 AM. All that is required is that you donate a minimum of 2 hours of your time each month working on tasks at the Thrift Store. Tasks are as easy as bringing donated clothing  home to wash or hanging up clothing for sale. There is a task suited for anyone who volunteers.

Firesirens also participate in community events :

-South Lake County Fire Protection  District Open House-April

-Wildland Fire Preparedness Day- Cobb and Hidden Valley Lake-May

-Memorial Day Ceremony – Middletown- May

-South Lake County Volunteer Fire Fighters Annual Dinner/Fund Raiser- Twin Lines Casino-June
