The U.S. Forest Service is adding eight new permanent firefighter and forestry technician positions to the Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest.

Individuals can apply for the job until May 6, 2020 at www.usajobs.gov

Pay grades range from GS5 through GS8 , and the duty stations are located in Helena, Townsend, Lincoln, Stanford, White Sulphur Springs, Neihart and Harlowton.

Working as a wildland firefighter for the Forest Service is a physically demanding job, but provides an invaluable service.

It is through their work that wildfires are contained, homes protected and forests are effectively managed.
