Tent or occasional bunkhouse camping is provided during the 8 project days. Housing is not provided on days off. Applicants must have military veteran status.
This position is for veterans interested in entering into careers and gaining experience in natural resource management, fuels mitigation, and wildland firefighting.
Applicants must fall between the ages of 21-37. Various start dates and program lengths; applications accepted on a rolling basis.
