JOB OPPORTUNITIES

ATTENTION ALL OUTBACK EMPLOYEES:
new direction from the USFS
If you were certified last year (took Refresher and Pack Test), you DO NOT need to take it this year. The Forest Service has extended this for 2020. This includes Yellow Carded employees. If you are a Firefighter, you still have to fill out some paperwork that we will be contacting you about soon.

If you are NEW - (never have taken RT130 or Pack Test) you STILL HAVE TO ATTEND OUR CLASSES AND TAKE PACK TEST. If you are NEW to Camp Crew, you STILL HAVE TO TAKE RT130 to obtain a Yellow Card.
