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