Every EFF/AD hired by AFS will be required to complete a medical examination, and all participants must be medically cleared prior to the Pack Test to be qualified to be employed by Alaska Fire Service for the 2019 fire season. This only applies to Federal wildland firefighters; the medical examination requirement does not apply to firefighters employed by the State of Alaska.
The BLM/Alaska fire Service has organized this process by the “regions” that they use to organize their EFF crews. The deadline for the Medical Exam Request Form for your region varies from village to village. We will be updating this information as we receive the updates from Alaska Fire Service. Please see links on this page for the Medical Exam Request Form for your region as well as all other forms that you will need to bring to the exam with you.
