Become a BLM Firefighter
For those who enjoy an active lifestyle, love being outdoors, and crave diversity in the workplace wildland firefighting may be for you. Wildland firefighting is an exciting profession that provides a wide array of job experience. Firefighters learn how to run firefighting equipment such as chainsaws, wildland fire engines, water pumps and other mechanized tools. They also learn how to read the weather and record it, efficiently dig a fire line, safely cut down trees, and conduct safety briefings and drills.
Wildland firefighters spend the majority of their time in the outdoors. Wildfires will burn anywhere that fuel is present, so firefighters are often sent to very remote beautiful areas throughout the United States. Firefighters may end up extinguishing a fire on top of a mountain or saving homes from flames near a city. Firefighters also help with natural disasters that occur all over the United States.
