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.

The duration of these positions is generally three to four months. Work begins approximately mid-June and ends mid-September.
