Sign Up To Be A BLM Firefighter


By Jay Michaels

Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Even with all this winter snow, it's still not too soon to sign up to be a firefighter this summer.

The Bureau of Land Management is holding application workshops. To sign up, you need an e-mail address, and you can fill out the application on a computer at the College of Southern Idaho. You'll need to be at least 18 years old, a US citizen, and have at least six months of general work experience.

Twin Falls BLM Fire Operations Supervisor Jonathan Palma says, "We fill approximately 75 seasonal positions. And new employees, we're probably looking at 10 to 20 that we're looking to fill."

Your next chance to sign up with the BLM is next Monday, January 13th from 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. That's in Room 103 of the Shields Building at CSI.
