From the Bureau of Land Management: 

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Ely District is accepting applications for temporary seasonal firefighters. Applications will be accepted through Tuesday, March 28, 2017, but those submitted by Tuesday, Jan. 10, will receive first consideration.

Positions are available on engines, in Helitack and dispatch.  Successful applicants will serve in Caliente, Ely or Pony Springs. Applications must be submitted online at usajobs.gov, available through the following link: http://www.firejobs.doi.gov.

Length of appointment varies depending on agency needs and funding, but cannot exceed 180 days, excluding overtime and training. The normal term of employment is from May through mid-September. Salaries range from $11.30 and $15.49 per hour, depending on experience.

Applicants must be a U.S. citizen. They must also be 18 years of age at time of employment and in possession of a valid driver’s license. Selected individuals are required to complete a physical examination and drug screening prior to employment and are subject to random drug testing during their time of service. Those in primary firefighting positions must also complete a “pack test” upon entering duty, which consists of hiking three miles over flat terrain in 45 minutes or less while carrying a 45-pound pack.
