Are you willing and capable of performing strenuous, outdoor work safely and productively? Washington State’s largest on-call fire department, DNR, is recruiting forest firefighters for the 2014 summer season.

This is an excellent opportunity for motivated individuals and students. Consider applying if you desire a career in natural resource management or want to gain fundamental forestry experience through fire crew employment.

The duration of these positions is generally three to four months, starting approximately mid-June and ending mid-September. The experience and training can build the foundation for a successful career in forestry and other natural resource professions. DNR will provide safety clothing needed for the job and housing for those who live outside the area they are assigned.
