Town of Vail looking for a few good wildland firefighters

By Real Vail
April 13, 2011
The Town of Vail has begun taking applications for six seasonal wildland firefighter openings that will be used to staff the town's wildfire mitigation crew for the fourth consecutive season.

The crew members will work from May 9 to Oct. 31 and will assist with tree cutting, pile burns, property inspections and other assignments to support the town's forest health projects, which will continue for the next several years. The new firefighters will also be available to respond to wildfire incidents in the surrounding area.

Applicants must have or show the ability to obtain a basic wildland firefighter certification as well as a tree cutting certification within 30 days of being hired. Applications are due by April 25 and are available on the town's website at

Last season the crew was responsible for removing 1,175 hazardous trees on public property, 75 percent completion of a town-wide hazardous tree assessment, plus free FireWise property inspections. In addition, the crew responded on 27 wildfire incidents.

During the upcoming season, the crew will be involved with fuel mitigation in areas that border U.S. Forest Service land adjacent to private and town-owned properties. In addition, there will be a cooperative effort with the Forest Service to improve safety on the various trails that are within the town.

The crew's activities are managed by Tom Talbot, wildland coordinator for Vail Fire and Emergency Services.

The interesting write-up you got there. Many people often face difficulty when they are writing a piece of paper. But I think if they have a guide to writing an expository essay. Then they will not face any issue in writing on any kind of paper. As it helped me a lot in not just write-ups but in assignments as well.
