MADILL, Okla. -- With moderate to high fire danger across Oklahoma, many fire departments are in need of volunteers.

Madill's department is one volunteer short of where they need to be, but are expecting to lose three or four to retirement this year.

Lt. Dale Graves said fire agencies throughout Marshall County wouldn't be able to function without volunteers.

"Your smaller departments, which are volunteer, that's their lifeline," he said. "Regardless of if it's a grass fire, structure fire, medical, whatever... they need volunteers."

To learn more about volunteering, check with your local fire department.
