Software Development and IT Positions
GIS and Disaster Response Positions
Each year, we respond to Wildfires, Mudslides, Floods, and Search and Rescue Events. To respond to these types of emergencies, it requires an augmentation of staffing to meet the needs of the emergencies.
FireWhat is recruiting individuals who have a keen interest in supporting Emergencies throughout the West. Our typical assignments last a minimum of 14 days, and could span as long as 45 days or longer. The conditions are modest, with a demand for long hours in tight quarters with your partners and fellow employees. Professionalism is a must in this setting.
Having experience in emergency management is not a must, but highly desirable. We are looking for dedicated individuals who are ok being away from home for extended periods of time, working in rugged conditions. We do our best to accommodate our staff, but there are times when sleeping in tent for a few days is required before our logistics can be set up.
We are excited to open up the 2016 Hiring Season. Please take a look at the positions below, and apply if you're a fit!
