Physical Fitness
       The Sawtooth IHC places a great deal of emphasis on physical conditioning.  Personal safety may depend on an ability to effectively respond to rapidly changing situations while under extreme physical and emotional stress.  The successful applicant will be able to describe in detail his/her personal conditioning program and may want to provide test results or any other quantitative evidence of fitness levels.  A high level of physical fitness is required before the start of fire season        A medical examination may be required prior to employment.  Physical fitness assessment will take place on the first day of hotshot training.  Minimum expectations are as follows:
 

    • 1.5 Mile run in 10:35 min. or less
    • Pull-ups, minimum of 7.  Situps, 40 in one minute. Pushups, 25 in one minute.
    • Fire line dig, 1.5 chains (99 feet) of fireline 3 feet wide in light grass in one hour or less.
    • Three mile hike with 1,000 feet of elevation gain while carrying a 50 lb. pack in 50 minutes or less.

       Part of the assessment is being able to stay with the crew in order to provide a cohesive, safe and effective team.  Individual performance as compared to crew performance will be considered.
