About the Author:
Born on November 17th,1960, David N Hilton grew a love for Forest Fire Lookouts at an early age. As a kid he would spend time in the Mt. Agamenticus Fire Tower in York, ME. In 1991, when the Maine Forest Service closed all of the fire towers in Maine, he organized a group of volunteers to staff three fire towers in York County. Mt. Agamenticus Fire Tower in York, Mt. Hope Fire Tower in Sanford and Ossipee Hill in Waterboro were staffed every year with volunteers. Today, the three towers are not as active as they were in the 1990′s, but they still stand ready for use.
