    Students interested in the challenging and rewarding work of fighting fires in nature are encouraged to apply for the Summer 2020 Oxnard College Wildland Firefighter Academy. The application period is Feb. 3-28 for classes beginning June 15. 

    “Wildland firefighters were critical in saving lives and structures in the devastating wild fires we’ve had in California in the past few years,” said Matthew Jewett, Assistant Dean, Public Safety, Oxnard College. “It’s hard work, but one of the most gratifying jobs you can do. We encourage anyone who likes being outdoors doing physical work and helping people to apply for the Academy.”

    The eight-week program covers wildland fire behavior, firefighting skills, portable water delivery systems, wildland fire chainsaws, basic land navigation, human factors on the fire line, and leadership values and principles. Students will use shovels or other hand tools to construct fire lines, use personal protective equipment, engage in arduous exertion, carry heavy loads, and evacuate rapidly to safety zones under conditions that may include challenging terrain and wild animals.

    After attending the Academy, students can apply for positions with the U.S. Forest Service, which employs approximately 10,000 wildland firefighters. Positions range from entry-level firefighters to senior fire management positions.

    Oxnard College Wildland Firefighter Academy information and application are available on the Wildland Fire Academy webpage. The program fills quickly, so students are encouraged to apply early.
