BLM Hosting Two Events to Fill More Than 100 Wildland Fire and Dispatch Jobs

The Bureau of Land Management is hosting two events in California to quickly fill over one hundred vital wildland firefighter and dispatch positions throughout the state for the 2024 fire year. Applicants are encouraged to attend one of the in-person events but may apply online in advance.

During the events, staff will be on-site to review resumes, process applications, conduct interviews and background checks and, at the Sacramento event, potentially make job offers.

“California’s need to build our wildland firefighter workforce is increasing and the Bureau of Land Management is looking to expedite the hiring process,” said State Fire Management Officer Peter Kelly.

“The BLM encourages enthusiastic, energetic individuals looking for a rewarding career in wildland fire management to apply and visit with us during these hiring events.”

The BLM will be hiring wildland firefighters for engines, hotshots, handcrews, helitack and dispatchers. A summary of these types of positions is available on the National Interagency Fire Center’s wildland fire job page.

The in-person events are scheduled as follows:

December 1st through 3rd 2023 at Pacific Southwest Research Station, 4955 Canyon Crest Dr. Riverside California from 9:00 to 4:00 each day.

February 2nd and 4th, 2024 at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel, 2001 Point W Way, Sacramento, California. The hours are Friday 12:00 to 4:00, Saturday 8:00 to 4:00 and Sunday 8:00 to 2:00.

In addition to the hiring events, three informational webinars are scheduled to provide applicants tips and assistance to navigate the application process. Those webinars are scheduled for October 19th and November 9th, 2023; and January 25th, 2024. Please register in advance through the website.

Job announcements, including qualifications, salaries, application instructions and application deadlines, will be available at USAJOBS.
