    Wildland firefighting. There are a couple of agencies you can apply with in the Vegas area. Google the BLM, US Forest service, and Park service. You can search by area for job openings. FYI, though, for the 2009 fire season, you would have most likely had to applied back in 2008.

    So if your interested for the 2010 fire season, make sure you acquire about the process around Sept-Dec 2009.

    Negative. Nevada Division of Forestry = Nevada = State
    Much as CAL Fire = California = State

    As opposed to United States Forest Service = United States = Government = Federal
