No Experience Required: Plumas National Forest Looking for Part-Time Firefighters

If you're at least 18 years old and can pass a fitness test, you can become a firefighter in the Plumas National Forest

Plumas National Forest, sitting just east of Chico, is looking for some men and women to join their seasonal on-call firefighting crew. They crew will assist in wildland fire suppression efforts both locally and nationally.

For training you’ll make approximately $15.64 an hour for 20 to 40 hours of class time. On assignment, expect to make $17.40 to $19.20 per hour, working 8 to 16-hour shifts. The only requirement? You must be at least 18 years old and be able to pass a fitness test.

The typical season lasts from May through November. Crews are dispatched with up to five Forest Service firefighters, providing a great opportunity for networking.

All crews operate on a call-when-needed basis. This means you should be packed and ready for a fire assignment at all times and able to respond to the reporting location within a few hours. Each assignment is a two-week commitment – meaning you are willing and able to be gone for up to 14 days at a time. Turning down assignments will not affect future assignments.

Training will be held at the specified location. Individuals will be provided with the “Basic 32” classes to become an entry-level Firefighter Type-II. This includes a required field day regardless of experience level.

You must sign up for the program in person. Here is the sign up information:
