Please Note:

We would like to receive an unofficial copy of your application for our files. If you are rated eligible by the automated system, we may see the first four pages of your application, but if you make mistakes, we will never see your application. Also, if there are several hundred applicants, we may only see the first fifty.

We encourage you to mail a copy of your resume with a cover letter to:

La Grande Ranger District
Attn: Hotshot Superintendent
3502 Hwy 30
La Grande, OR 97850

If you do not apply through the Automated Process, we will not be able to consider you for employment.

We also like to meet you in person. Most of the people we hire have taken the initiative to come in to meet us in person, and they keep in contact with us during the hiring period.

If you are really interested in becoming a Hotshot - please contact us.
