    Go to http://www.wildlandfire.com/jobs.htm and follow links. Probably the most comprehensive website, especially if you are in California.

    Pretty much everyone hires some. Start off maybe with where you would like to be first, and then go down your list. Also realize that the more popular places likely don't hire very many new folks, and conversely, the more remote, waaaaaaay of the beaten path places probably have a highter turnover and will be hiring more newbies.

    The best advice I can offer is to call your choosen places direct and see if they are under the national open continuous roster, or are old school enough to have their own hiring protocols.
