    Chris, there is a few routes you could take: federal agencies; USDA Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, Bureau of Indian Affairs all hire seasonal firefighters. State agencies that I know of that hire sesonals are: California Dept. of Forestry and Fire Protection (largest multi-purpose FD in the US) Oregon Division of Forestry, Nevada Division of Forestry and Washington Dept. of Natural Resources... i don't have web addresses for all of these except CDF: www.ca.fire.gov

    don't tell someone how to do something, tell them what to do and they will suprise you with their ingenuity

    Try searching under "hotshots" or "hotshot crew". We occassionally have openings on our type 1 crew, the Rio Bravo Hotshots. Try it at.. http://www.co.kern.ca.us/fire/rbhs/rbhs.htm
