Work With Us

The National Park Service Structural Fire Program works with Engine Company Parks, Volunteers-in-Parks (VIPs), and fire protection interns.

Fire Protection Internships


Each year, parks and NPS regional offices employ interns to address fire protection issues.

Engine Company Parks

Engine Co. Parks

Engine company parks maintain an NPS staffed and owned Type I or II structure fire apparatus for structure fire and all-hazard response within the park.

Volunteers In Parks

Volunteer intern Wei-Ho Li stands with regional structural fire manager Raul Castillo on the National Mall.

Volunteers In Parks or “VIPs” play an important role in accomplishing the mission of the NPS Structural Fire Program.
