Fire DAWG

Clerical Support Staff

June 2011 • Chico, CA

What I liked

I enjoyed getting to travel all over the western United States - I got to visit so many places I would have never traveled to otherwise. I also enjoyed meeting all the different types of people who work at fire base camps. There are so many different industries involved in managing wildfires.

What I wish was different

The hours and work weeks are long, but the overtime pay makes it worth it!

Advice

Be up for an adventure - fire season can be super busy and you can be called to work anywhere in the western United States!
