    After 12 years with the FS I gave up my PSE appointment and went to work for a city. My first year even as a prob I doubled my pay.

    My job with the FS was in fire and I used to get close to 800 hrs of overtime a season. I have heard Cal-Fire make good money, but have not seen actual numbers.

    My reply would be. Depends on what part of the nation you live in and what kind of stability you are lokking for. In California most everyone makes more that Federal types. In Nevada Fed types make a more in places...For and example!

    I am saying generally, not always, wild land firefighters are paid less than city/urban. This is primarily due to the “seasonal” effect.
