    Could Use Some Help

    For some time I have been interested in becoming a wildland firefighter but heres my problem I live in Massachusetts and the biggest brush fire I ever been to was only about 10 acres. What I am asking is; are there any state organizations that will hire you and ship you to different fires to provide aid similar to like a task forces? I really am not as educated on this subject as I would like to be however all the info I have found has been that you have to be a parks employee so I am not entirely sure and any info would help me alot

    Thanks
