MISSION: The Forestry and Fire Recruitment Program (FFRP) is a nonprofit organization that provides career support to formerly incarcerated firefighters and those currently incarcerated in California’s Conservation Camps; who are interested in careers in the Wildland and Forestry sector. FFRP was developed in direct response to the growing need for wildfire-related personnel. Their mission is to increase wildfire personnel from non-traditional and underrepresented communities, providing them the training, skills, resources, and experiences needed to secure gainful employment.

“Forestry and Fire Recruitment Program is honored to receive the $5,000 Climate Ride grant. FFRP will use these funds to support our cohort participants, to expand the program to reach more participants, and to implement pre-fire fuel treatment projects.” –Brandon Smith, Co-Founder & Executive Director
