A career with the Forest Service is hard work but is very rewarding. Here you will be in a professional work environment allowing you to develop your skills and work towards our mission... 
"Caring for the Land and Serving People."

The Eldorado National Forest is seeking a group of career focused people to train for seasonal wildland firefighter employment during the 2018 fire season. These seasonal positions will provide support to wildland fire operations over the summer and can help pave the way for future permanent employment and career advancement in the Forest Service. If you are selected for this opportunity the readiness training will provide formal classroom courses, as well as hands on in the field wildland fire training and orientation. The training will represent the real work environment. This includes constructing fire line for long periods and daily physical training. Wildland firefighting is a physically demanding job and so is this training. Compensation for your time is being offered to all selected applicants that attend and lodging is offered to selected students living over 50 miles away. Attendance throughout all training days is required for successful completion and certification. Both classes being offered are a 10 hour a day commitment on all 4 days. This training includes wildland firefighter basic certifications for employment (Basic 40), resume workshop and USAJOBS overview. We hope you will come join us for this amazing opportunity. The only requirement for this training is being a US citizen.
