Is this for me?

Let's be honest - not everyone is cut out to be a wildland firefighter. And that's ok. The world needs accountants and recruiters too!

Those whose first instinct is to run towards the smoke, and those who turn their back on it. If you're reading this, we know which type of person you believe you are.
