Thousands of jobs about to open That's right. Fire season is right around the corner. Come out west and help fight wildfires! Jobs available are many: The less physically fit, asthmatic, etc. can work as drivers - carrying people and equipment where needed. Long hours but the pay is good. The physically fit can fight the fires themselves. Lots of hard, honest work. Cutting firelines, clearing brush, setting backfires, etc. You work 14 days on, two days off. It's going to be a long fire season and the pay is good. Lots of money to be made this year. There is an element of danger though. We lose firefighters every year. For the lunatics, you can always jump out of perfectly good airplanes to fight fires.
