Fire Hire

Photo of firefightersThe Southwestern Region Fire Hire program streamlines the hiring process for permanent fire positions, and allow for more consistent hiring around the Region. The change in hiring process is in response to a continual vacancy situation that all of the national forests in the Southwestern Region currently face.  The unique feature of this process is the ability to immediately backfill positions that have been vacated.
