Fuels Management specialist
Folsom Field Office
He says he's just a dumb fire guy. A humble comment (and under-assessment) from someone who has been a public servant from a young age.
Brian Mulhollen became a fuels management specialist at the Folsom Field Office in March 2007 after working as a hotshot, heli-attack and engine crewman with the U.S. Forest Service for more than ten years. He spent time in the Deschutes, Rogue River, Klamath and Six Rivers National Forests before joining the BLM.
Brian grew up in Jacksonville, Oregon, a historical town located about seven miles west of Medford and fifteen miles north of Ashland, Oregon. He worked on urban parks and the trail system around his hometown and was recognized for his work in 1993 with the state and national Jefferson Award for outstanding public service. The Jefferson Award, established in 1972 to encourage and honor inidividuals for their achievements and contributions through public and community service, is presented by the American Institute for Public Service in partnership with local community organizations.
His devotion to fire fighting began with his involvement with the Fire and EMS Explorers in the Boy Scouts of America in Jacksonville. He has taken numerous fire and aviation courses through the U.S. Forest Service.
You can tell he likes using his hands by the hobbies he enjoys -- sawmilling, wood working and picking the mandolin. He lives with his wife Summer and three children in Dutch Flat, California.
