Department of Natural Resources accepting applications for seasonal jobs

OLYMPIA, Wash. - The Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is accepting applications for Forest Firefighter and Natural Resource Worker positions for the 2009 fire season, which begins April 15, 2009. More than 350 positions will be available statewide.

The department is also recruiting for summer positions in the Washington Conservation Corps (WCC).

The deadline for seasonal job applications varies by region of the state; most are due by 5 p.m. on March 31, 2008. For complete job listings and more information, visit http://www.dnr.wa.gov/AboutDNR/Employment/Pages/Home.aspx or go to www.DNR.wa.gov and select the "Jobs" link.

"As a volunteer firefighter for more than 30 years in Eastern Washington, I can attest to the value of the experience and training you will get as a wildland firefighter," said Public Lands Commissioner Peter Goldmark.

This is an opportunity for students who want to earn college tuition and educational loan repayment vouchers while working outdoors in Washington's wildland - and get paid for the experience.

Positions available include Forest Firefighter, an entry-level position that does not require previous experience in natural resources work. DNR also is hiring seasonal Natural Resource Workers with natural resource-related experience to help lead work crews.

All Firefighter positions require:

  • A valid driver's license and two years of driving experience,
  • An acceptable driving record free of serious violations,
  • A high school diploma or G.E.D., and
  • Successful completion of a physical fitness/work capacity test.

DNR will provide training to entry-level forest firefighters. Some positions will be eligible for a $1,250 AmeriCorps Educational Award.
