Start growing your beard ASAP so it will be robust enough to get through this 4-day qualification course. The Bureau of Land Management is looking for military grade talent to help protect our public lands as Type 2 Wildland Firefighters. Did we mention they pay you?
Here is what you can expect (and take a look at some of these photos from last year):
Day 1: In-processing and 45lb weighted pack test.
Day 2: Classroom ops covering ICS, fire behavior, PPE, and human factors.
Day 3: Field Day! Learn to use the tools and operate safely on the fire line.
Day 4: Wrap up and graduation.
There are some pre-requisites. Please make sure you are a TR member (both military and civilian can join) and have your ICS 100 and 700 complete.
