The Vegas Valley Hand Crew is part of the Bureau of Land Management Fire and Aviation program located in Las Vegas, Nevada. A hand crew consists of 20+ men and women who work together as a cohesive unit to suppress wildland fires and conduct fuels projects throughout the United States. The Vegas Valley crew was established in April 2012 and is unique in the fact that it is one of only a handful of fire crews in the U.S. that are comprised of military veterans. If you are highly motivated, physically fit and enjoy working in a fast paced team environment all over the US for six months out of the year. Then you may want to apply! Please contact Superintendent James Blair if you are interested or have any questions.
