Since 1980, the Boise National Forest has been home to this national resource. Boise Interagency Hotshot Crew (IHC) is a "family" of unique people from diverse cultures. Our crew values independence while functioning as a team to achieve a common goal or objective. We thrive on the challenge and stress of the job and possess an oath of obligation to the program.

Boise IHC promotes a learning atmosphere, fostering hard working individuals who thrive on physical fitness and teamwork while enjoying the difficulties of the job.

Additionally, The Boise IHC maintains a 14 day detail position open to interested permanent or seasonal employees. Annually, we actively seek trainees and Joint Apprentice candidates to detail onto the crew for the entire season. This opportunity is open to all land management agencies and disciplines.
