Employment Opportunities

nickFirestormers, Inc. usually has some openings each year for firefighters and/or engine bosses.  We seek quality people to fill these positions.  We usually begin filling our positions in January and February of each year for the coming season. For the 2019 season we are seeking  a quality engine boss and firefighters to fill out our crew.

This could be an excellent opportunity for an engine boss from the east, south or southwest to extend their season by working in our region when things slow down in your home region.  We have some flexibility and can cover the position until you are available to leave your area.

We have firefighter positions to fill along with backup firefighter positions.  Our backups will be called in when our primary firefighters are not available. We will do our best to get you on some fires this year and this can be an excellent way to “get your foot in the door” for a primary position for the next year.

We are looking for employees who are hard working, have a good attitude and can work well in a team setting.  As a Christian based organization, we desire individuals who have high moral standards and who reflect that in their actions.  Experience in wildland firefighting is desired but we are willing to train someone who is willing to make the commitment to be a quality firefighter.

All employees need to be located within a 2 hour radius of Ontario, OR for the season when on-call to help expedite a quick response when dispatched.  Housing may be furnished for quality individuals if required.  We will require references, drug testing and background checks.  Any drivers will need to have a good driver’s history.

We try to create a working environment that is safe, productive, a good learning experience and also fun for the employees.  These are a few comments from our employees:

“Firestormers is awesome for relative beginners.  The training is top notch and it is one of the few wildland contractors that encourages and actively supports advancement from Firefighter II to FF I and even Engine Boss.”  – Luke

“Firestormers, Inc. stands apart from the rest because the company is truly committed to training and looking after its employees.  I would recommend Firestormers to anyone looking for work in wildland firefighting.  If I ever find myself running a business, I hope to run it with the integrity that Firestormers does.” -Samantha

“I have worked both with and for Kevin Curfman for two seasons and he has shown me nothing but respect as both an employee and a person. The company has always treated me with respect and generosity and has provided me with opportunity to progress and become both a better firefighter and person. I am very proud to wear my company shirt because I know what and who it represents.” -Marcus
