DNR recruiting new firefighters
New online application process for summertime employment
OLYMPIA – The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is recruiting for forest firefighter crew members and engine leaders/squad boss positions for the 2012 summer season.
Being a member of a handcrew or wildland fire engine crew is an excellent opportunity for motivated individuals and students who desire a career in natural resource management or to gain fundamental forestry experience through fire crew employment.
Individuals must be willing and capable of performing strenuous outdoor work safely and productively and of accepting direction and acting responsibly. The duration of these positions is generally three to four months. Work begins approximately mid-June and ends mid-September. The experience and training gained as a forest firefighter or an engine leader/squad boss can form the foundation for a successful career in forestry and other natural resource professions.
