Job Overview

GAIN PROFESSIONAL JOB SKILLS, CONTRIBUTE TO CLIMATE RESILIENCE, AND LAUNCH YOUR WILDLAND FIRE CAREER!

MCC is hiring Women’s Fuels & Fire Crew Members!  We focus on the growth of our members, transferable job skills, and making a positive impact on the climate and environment.   This crew offers an intentional and  supportive work environment  for anyone who identifies as a woman and/or femme. We welcome trans applicants who are comfortable in a femme-identifying space.  MCC’s Women’s Fuels and Fire Crews work in partnership with the National Park Service (NPS) with one crew working primarily in Yellowstone National Park and the other in Grand Teton National Park. This program focuses heavily on education and exposure, providing participants with the opportunity to shadow and work alongside our agency partners to gain skills and knowledge in natural resource management, specifically related to the field of wildland firefighting. 


Location: Bozeman, MT

Ages: 17-30, up to 35 for military veterans
Term Dates: 5/1/2023-8/11/2023
Living Allowance: $920.00 biweekly before taxes are taken out
Education Award: $1,718.25 upon completion of term

Health Insurance: Provided at NO COST

Member Assistance Program: Free 24/7 access to confidential behavioral health counseling, financial assistance, medical/legal advocacy, and more!

Food Per Diem while on Projects

Access to Pro Deals!

Housing options may be available in specific regions; talk with a Program Manager to learn more!! 

Participants will have the opportunity to receive extensive training and potential certifications in wildland firefighting, including a nationally recognized chainsaw certification (S212), basic wildland firefighting classes (S130, S190, L180, IS100, IS700), in addition to having an opportunity to receive a  wildland fire incident qualification “red” card.  Additionally, our partners will work to mentor participants, helping to support their growth and build a resume to apply for federal wildland fire jobs. Project work will vary, but will include habitat restoration and fuels reduction with a partial focus on chainsaw use, and a general emphasis on gaining knowledge of the professional pathways that exist within our Federal Land Management Agencies.

Should conditions allow, upon completion of your term of service with MCC it is the goal of the National Park Service to provide you with the opportunity to deploy on a fire assignment. Fire rolls depend on need and can start 2-20 days after your term of service ends in mid-August. Rolls vary in length depending on need from 14-30 days. If the need arises after your MCC season concludes, crews will communicate directly with NPS partners to join a fire role or any other alternative assignment as AD (administratively determined) hires.  You will NOT be on an active fire/prescribed burn during your term with Montana Conservation Corps.  

This is a great opportunity to get exposure to the world of wildland fire and the unique professional opportunities that exist beyond fighting on the front lines, and is an excellent stepping stone for future career opportunities.  If you are looking for something unique, love learning, and want to address urgent climate change issues, then this is the perfect opportunity for you! 

There will be 2 different crews for the 2023 season; the programs are all similar, but project work and season can vary between crews:

  • National Park Service (NPS), Grand Teton National Park
  • National Park Service (NPS), Yellowstone National Park

 

Participants must pass medical screening and must meet the Federal Wildland Firefighter Medical Standards for arduous duty wildland firefighting.
