HELENA — Beginning Monday, March 4, and running through March 15, the Helena-Lewis and Clark National Forest is taking applications for 12 entry-level permanent wildland firefighter and dispatch positions.

These positions can provide an avenue for interested parties to create a career in fire management.

The Forest is hosting multiple two-day hiring events in various towns on March 7 and 8. These hiring events allow interested applicants to learn more about working on a fire crew. Hiring events will be taking place in towns such as Augusta, White Sulphur Springs, Stanford, Townsend, Lincoln, Great Falls, and Helena.
