SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Several state and federal agencies are recruiting now for temporary wildland firefighting jobs that begin next May.
The jobs are with the Bureau of Land Management, the U. S. Forest Service and the Utah Division of Forestry, Fire and State Lands. The positions begin in May 2010 and run through fire season, which ends in September.
Wildland firefighters typically battle fire on public lands. The jobs require strenuous physical labor, long hours in sometimes remote locations and on rough terrain.
Applications are available online on the state forest lands, forest service and BLM websites.
