Of the approximately 400 annual entry-level positions (crewmember) within MNRF, the vast majority are filled by returning staff. However, a turn-over rate of roughly 30% is expected annually meaning approximately 120 new fire fighters are hired each spring.

Please note:

The turn-over percentage varies depending on location so each Fire Management Headquarters should be contacted directly as to actual job opportunities. During periods of escalated fire activity, the MNRF may hire Supplementary Fire Fighters to assist in a variety of roles. However, these are short-term, temporary contracts that end when forest fire activity returns to normal. There is also privately run firefighting crews (Type 2) that the MNRF hires during escalated fire periods. These Type 2 fire fighter providers should be contacted directly as to actual job opportunities.
