In general, current law provides that a felony conviction or other
offense involving moral turpitude does not, in and of itself, prevent a
person from applying for or obtaining public employment. The bill
extends this to persons applying to positions within the wildland fire

The bill requires the division of fire prevention and control
(division) to develop materials to increase awareness of wildland fire
career opportunities for persons who acquired experience in wildland fire
services through the inmate disaster relief program (program).
The bill states that the division is encouraged to hire persons who
acquired experience in the program for positions performing wildland fire

fire services through the program so those persons may develop and
sustain professional skills.
