Firefighter Training Program

Firefighter Training Program

Fire Fighter Training

Our firefighter training program has been made possible because of a partnership between the Tuolumne County Recreation Department and the U.S. Forest Service Stanislaus National Forest.

The mission is to provide senior high school students with the training necessary to begin a career in fire and/or future employment with the U.S. Forest Service as wild land firefighters, aid the U.S. Forest Service in the effort to hire quality employees, and give young adults more employment opportunities.

The program is available to all qualifying high school seniors and others up to age 21. The job training is annually held during the spring break vacation for both major high schools in the county. Don't miss this great opportunity.

Students must sign up online with the Recreation Department to be considered for the program. Contact the Recreation Department at 209-533-5663 for more information.
