The Bureau of Land Management is looking for people to fill wildfire dispatching positions. The pay ranges from $16 an hour to $22 an hour.

Applications are open until February. The positions are seasonal, from April through October.

“The work is primarily performed in an office setting, but demands long hours of sitting and irregular shifts,” the agency wrote in a statement. The job requires “long periods of intense concentration and working at peak proficiency/intensity levels.”

The government agency will be hiring for a number of other positions in the near future as well.
