Wildland firefighting is one of the few government jobs with little or no formal education requirements; not even a high school degree is required for most entry-level work. Not surprising, then, that pay and benefit packages do not compete with urban firefighting agencies that generally require formal post-high fire science education (e.g., 2-year associates degree) and EMT certification.
Dear Smokey Lover,
At your suggestion, I called Sandra Lopez. She had no comment on Avue. She also didn't know that you were referring calls to her on this matter.
