The Lehighton Fire Police unit is desperately in need of members.
Lehighton Chief of Police Neal Ebbert said that of the current fire police roster, only five members are under age 70.
Ebbert said he was advised by Raymond Moyer, president of the Lehighton Fire Police, that the unit will no longer assist at Lehighton Area High School football games.
"I am making a plea to sign up and be in the fire police," Ebbert said.
He said fire police members direct traffic at accidents, fires, and other emergency scenes, as well as assist at some special events.
