A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. New River Gorge National River in West Virginia encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
Denali is six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Travelers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America's tallest peak, 20,310' Denali. Wild animals large and small roam un-fenced lands, living as they have for ages. Solitude, tranquility and wilderness await.
In addition to ICS qualifications, many DOI incidents also require personnel with highly specialized skills gained through educational degree programs such as Biologists or Architectural Conservators, or who meet industry training standards such as Arborists or Boat Operators. In many cases, these personnel may perform the same duties during an incident that they perform in their regular job. The IPQG contains the incident qualification requirements for many of these "technical specialists."
If you are interested in becoming an emergency responder for the Department, you are encouraged to start by taking basic Incident Command System (ICS) courses and checking with your Bureau or Office Emergency Coordinator.
