Alaska Fire Service Medical Exams

Written by Communications_Dept on . Posted in All News Items

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.

The Hunting and Fishing Task Force and UAF Tribal Management thank all of the tireless hunting and fishing advocates who traveled to Fairbanks on November 7-8, 2018 to work together to strengthen their Local Advisory Committees. Strong Advisory Committees are critical to ensuring state fish and game regulations are in place to meet your local needs. The level of engagement and interest demonstrated the knowledge, expertise, and desire of our people to be more effective in the public process. TCC and UAF were especially grateful for the active participation by ADF&G Boards Support regional coordinator, Nissa Pilcher, for her expertise and assistance in support this two-day workshop.
Your advocates are working hard to make a better day for our peoples, please thank them when you see them for giving their time to the Task Force.
