  • Getting My Redcard

    Hey guy's I'm an 18 y.o fireman/emt from NW Indiana. I've been a fireman for a year now and want to get as much training in anything and everything that I can. In April there is what is called the "Duneland Fire School" for fireman throughtout Indiana held in Chesterton, Indiana. I can take the 2 weekend class and get my basic wildland certification and my red card through those 2 weekends and get my pack test done. Where do I go from there so I can get put out on all the big fires all over the place? Any help would be awesome. Thanks!

    If wildland is what you want to do, you need to apply with the USFS on the west coast. Having your red card probably wont get you on any fires where you currently are. At your age, I would spend a couple seasons on the west coast getting some really great fires before you settle down.

    I spent over 10 years with the feds out west and they were some of the best years of my life.

      i would recommend talking to your state department of Forestry/natural resources and asking about wildland crews, most of the resource requests for crews comes from the agency needed the help, goes through the National interagency Fire Center in Boise, who requests help (on rotation i think) from the various state, federal and private agencies who are listed as available resources

        If you want to go "all over the place", the easiest way to do so is become a Fed--NPS, BLM, FWS, FS... USAJobs has tons of FF job listings right now for the 08 season, all you have to do is search... series 0462 or 0455.
        My opinions might coincide with someone of importance's POV... I wouldn't know, since I never bothered to ask. My policy is: "Don't ask, don't care."
