There is a need for detailers to work with the Center for a 25-day period. The detailer will serve as Field Coordinator handling coordination between the attendees, PFTC, and the various agencies that will host the prescribed burns. The Field Coordinators will be with a group of six individuals day and night for most of their stay. Field Coordinators must demonstrate strong leadership skills, enthusiasm for teaching and must be able to answer questions on technical aspects of prescribed burning. Due to these circumstances, prescribed fire experience is required (Southeastern desirable), and a current qualification as a RXB2. Both office and fieldwork will be required.
Applications from disciplines other than fire management are strongly encouraged. All Field Coordinators will be on Per Diem during their detail, and must be self-sufficient with a government travel card, personal credit card, or cash.
