Dylan is a First Year JFR Crew Member on the Fort McMurray Crew!
Why did you apply to the JFR program?
I wanted something to do this summer instead of sitting at home. I’ve never done anything like this before. I enjoy forestry and I’ve always wanted to see a wildfire.
What are you most excited about for the upcoming summer?
Wildfire! I want to see what Wildland firefighting is actually like, not just a clip on TV.
What is your dream job?
I don’t know. I really like math. My goal is to keep doors open and open new doors and see what happens from there. I hope I find something that I’m interested in here.
What do you like most about your crewmates?
I love their sense of humour - including the leaders! Laughing is really important to me.
What is one thing that you have learnt or completed through JFR that you never thought you would?
I never expected how to use a brush saw. It’s like an adult weed whacker!
