Only you can help...

Budgets are tight and staff is short so we're looking for volunteers to help keep our parks safe and beautiful. 

Your job is to patrol the park and rescue lost hikers and contain any forest fires that might get started. If you can keep things under control for 3 shifts, you can become a full-time helitack ranger.

Your helicopter is equipped with all the gear you need to get the job done. Stay focused, stay calm, and do your best.

We also recommend reading the handbook. It might just save a life.
