    You are welcome, good luck.

    It is very common for people to start looking for work on April or May and in reality there are few opportunities available by then. I recommend people begin making contacts in September / October before crews get laid off for the season, then follow up shortly after new years. I know for myself in California I am usually well into my hiring by February and have already made my selections by early March.

    Some of the southern states have a fall / winter season so you might look into that as well. Usually more RX fire than initial attack, but still good experience.

    The Nature Conservancy is another option. I've known a few people who have picked up a month or two of work with them in the off season on fire use crews.
