qrs I'd try checking with the Pennsylvania Dept of Forestry http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/forestry/ and/or any local agencies, as well as look up the Nature Conservancy who helps many agencies maintain forest lands, with them you can get the training and experience doing control burns. offhand I don't of any real age limits (might be to get on PA-DOF), I started at age 35 with FL-DOF"If you can't be a good example, the you'll just have to be a terrible warning."

To the best of my knowledge, Federal law prohibits anyone under age 18 from fighting fire. Some state forestry's do have under 18, but I don't believe they can fight fire.IACOJ
Stopping controlled burning DOES NOT stop the burning, only the control!
