Placer Center Corpsmembers hike through a wooded area in Nevada County, CA during their annual readiness exercise.

Whether you’re interested in a wildland firefighting career, or just want to challenge yourself, the CCC Placer Center is a place you can do both.

Corpsmembers join the fire crew to help launch their dream fire careers, or simply to gain work experience for a life in natural resources.

It’s a job that requires physical and mental strength. But, what the crew gets out of the work is what matters most.

Corpsmembers get to make a difference, stop wildfires, and grow as people and professionals.
