My current employment is with Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation bureau of Forest Fire Control as a seasonal state firefighter. My district includes Cape Cod and the islands which includes some wonderful pine barrens.

Though out the season, from March to October, we help provide prevention education, fuels reduction work including prescribed fire, and many communities are working on fire adaptation.
