The Selection Process:

Each season, the Siskiyou Rappel Crew seeks quality employees to fill crew member positions for duty as aerial delivered wildland firefighters. Before being considered for a position, applicants must meet these basic minimum requirements: be 18 years of age at time of hire, provide proof of U.S. Citizenship, have at least one season (3 months or more) of experience where their primary duty was as a wildland firefighter, and complete the Work Capacity Test (WCT) within the specified time for arduous duty. Qualifications beyond basic wildland firefighter, such as FFT1, ICT5, FAL1, EMT, etc., are not required but are highly desirable. Previous recreational rappel experience is not required nor is it advantageous.
Occasionally, one or more of the permanent positions on the crew become available. These positions are targeted for experienced helicopter crewmembers with a strong background in fire management and aviation.

Pay Scale:

Most crew members qualify as a GS-462-4 with an hourly wage of approximately $15.10. Overtime is paid for duty over 8 hours in a day at a rate of 1.5 times the base wage. For hazardous duty (which includes fire suppression activities, low level recon, and a variety of other helicopter related operations) employees are compensated an additional 25% of their base wage for all hours worked during that day. The Siskiyou Rappel Crew averages approximately 750 hours of overtime each fire season.
