Fire and Emergency Service Options

Umatilla County Fire District 1 (Hermiston) and Umatilla Rural Fire Protection District (Umatilla) are both accepting applications to their resident intern programs. The programs are almost identical in that we provide housing and tuition reimbursement for students who enroll in a fire science, emt, or nursing program. The Resident Intern program provides the student with valuable training and benefits, but more importantly, the experience that cannot be attained in a classroom - working shoulder to shoulder with our professionals personnel at emergency scenes.

Interested candidates should apply to both programs to increase their chances of being selected. The applications can be found on-line at or at 


Frenchtown Rural Fire District -Frenchtown, Montana
